The 1912 Jail

 Interior of the 1912 jail addition looking down the prisoners walkway.
After the jail was condemned in 1911 due to poor conditions and overcrowding an addition was built in 1912 at a cost of $10,600.00. In 2013 The History Center restored the jail to appear as it did during its years of service.

 

 

"Each cell is provided with every convenience that a prisoner could ask for, and it will be possible to keep the entire cell block as neat and clean as a parlor with very little work."
Cheboygan Democrat, November 15, 1912
