Monroe County Jail

-A A +A
1865; c. 1935 rehabilitated, Rinker and Kiefer. 7th St., southeast of the courthouse

Diagonally across the street from the town square is the Monroe County Jail. It presents a conventional domestic brick Italianate facade with a massive cornice and a slightly projecting entrance. To the rear is the jail wing of forbidding granite walls with slit windows that attest to its purpose.
