Wordless Wednesday- 10 February 2010- a small town jail

This is the jail for Maunie, White County, Illinois in its hey day. I have to admit that more than one ancestor spent a night there. It's not in use today, but stands as one of the reminders of an earlier age.

May I ask the reasons the ancestors were locked up in this jail?
Jails back then were such a simple structure

One much like that is a tourist attraction in Council Grove, Kansas...

Thanks for sharing.

Keep these ancestor stories coming!
