This one room jail in Plumerville was built sometime around the early 1900s. This style of concrete “pour-in-place” construction was perfected around the 1910s in the midwest. It displays a sort of slanted roof shape, uncommon in other states like Kansas and Oklahoma’s tiny jails.

Very cool information about the building! Thank you for sharing.
I definitely wouldn’t call it abandoned, my dad uses it for storage to this day. It might be a good idea to let people know this is in someone’s yard. Did you receive permission before going in his yard to take pictures?
should have jails like this today. no tv,ac etc, …bet crime rate would drop…
