The Old Jail Museum

Opens every Monday through Friday from 10-2pm. Just call (931) 212-1944 for a volunteer to meet you at the museum. Email clpeters@charter.net if you need assistance.  

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. The last civil war battle was fought in Lawrence and Giles counties; there are actual pieces from the civil war. Lawrence county is also known for the Native American people 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 Wars One and Two histories 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 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 a lot of kids wanting 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.

Enter your address into your GPS of choice and find your way to the Lawrenceburg, Tennessee Square, where you can see the Old Jail Museum just a walk away from the James D. Vaughan Museum! The Square 40 and Society restaurants are there to see while you are in the area! See the links below to help you plan your trip to Lawrence county. The address is for the fire station across the street because the Old Jail Museum doesn't have an address. It is that locked away!
