Plumerville Jail

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.

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?

Heads up! It’s not abandoned at all! I wouldn’t go trespassing without permission!
