Of course Morris, she has to forgive me, otherwise not Christmas gifts for her! Celine Dion is our greatest singer along with Michael Buble! I just love their music!

Sounds like this was a real working jail in its time?

Graciela

They have a short 14 min. video to watch about Charlie Birger, an American Bootlegger who lived in the area. He was the last person to be hung in Illinois. They you can walk into the old cells and see the inside of the bldg. I believe there are some things in cases and old pics from back in the day and pics of Charlie standing on the platform with the rope around his neck. I haven't been there in 10 yrs. and need to go back.

Gracie, you made all that stuff up just so you can get on Santa's good side. I know you!

Thank you all for your comments.
I may be old young man, but not that old!
Thank you Celeste.
I would love for you to come to visit Ank. I will take you there. The inside is really old and untouched.
