The Old Jail Museum
Lawrence County has a lot of historical significance inside the actual jailhouse they 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 many past events that we can see today. Some of the last Civil War battles fought in Tennessee were in Lawrence and Giles Counties; there are actual pieces from the Civil War in the Old Jail Museum. Lawrence County is also known for the Native American people who lived here! The museum has a whole section devoted to Native American history! The Trail Of Tears Bell Route passed on what is now the road right in front of the Old Jail Museum and has items you won't see on the trail at David Crockett State Park or the Native American Interpretive Center in Pulaski. There are other rooms dedicated to the histories of World Wars One and Two for those who like military history. Most of all, there are 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 photos, 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 an actual working jail, and there was a police officer that was shot while on duty inside the jail. Several locals swear the old jail is haunted and say you can still hear the prisoners inside talking when no one is in the jail! As we have said before, we don't know why so many kids like entering the cells and having them look locked up. We don't mean any harm to those who are or have been incarcerated or have family members who are currently in jail or prison, so please don't get offended. We see many kids who want to play inside the cells. There are two groups of cells. The cells downstairs are a bit more rigid and small, while the cells upstairs are more familiar in size and shape to most current jail cells.
