The Old Jail Museum
Lawrence county has a lot of historical significance inside the real jail house they actually used to hold criminals. Today the jail is a museum that houses our treasures and we would love for you to see them. Lawrence county had a lot of things happen in the past that we can see today. The last civil war battle was fought in Lawrence and Giles county and there are real pieces from the civil war to see. Lawrence county is also known for the Native American peoples who lived here! They have a whole section devoted to Native American history! The Trail Of Tears Bell Route passed on the road right in front of the old jail and has items you won't see on the trail at David Crockett Park or the Native American Interpretive Center in Pulaski. There are other rooms with world war one and two history for those who like military history. Most of all there are the jail cells inside. Kids love being locked up for some reason and there are a variety of cells to visit for them and take their photo so make sure to include the Old Jail Museum on your trip!
Get locked up at the Old Jail Museum
The Old Jail Museum was a real working jail and there was even a police officer that was shot while on duty inside the jail. Several locals swear the old jail is haunted and say that you can still hear the prisoners inside talking when there is no one in the jail! Like we said before, we don't know why so many kids like going in the cells and having them act like they are locked up. We don't mean any harm to those who were actually incarcerated or have family who are currently in jail somewhere so please don't get offended. We just see a lot of kids wanting to play inside the cells. There are two groups of cells. Those downstairs are a bit more rigid and small while the cells upstairs were more familiar in size and shape to most jail cells.
