Hamilton County Old Jail Museum
501 1st Avenue Northeast, Jasper, FL, USA
Built in 1893, the Old Jail is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This two-story fireproof brick, steel and concrete structure was also home to the Sheriff and his family. There were babies brought into the world and men taken from the world in this building. Actual photographs of what is believed to be the last legal hanging East of the Mississippi are on display. This was Hamilton County's only jail and was used until 1984. At this time the Old Jail is under renovations. Tours are by appointment only. Please call Renee Daigle (Hamilton County Historical Society President) to schedule your tour at 386-855-0852.
