This is an old county jail that was in use from 1869 through 1988 when the new county jail was opened. During that time, it was reported that only one prisoner escaped from the jail, but was picked up a few blocks away (Carlinville, IL).

No, gnt, this is not being used. It's just there as a piece of the county's history.
Robbie, you did it. You posted your comment, Well done! If you ever come back to the area, do give a shout.

Hi LJ, I'm going to try for the third and final time to leave a comment. I was close by in Carrollton visiting my wire manufacturer Southwire years ago. Thankfully I did not see the inside of this beautiful building! The large blocks of stone on the right are really cool and this is a wonderful picture............Hit post comment NOW!!!

Well I saw the pic and jailhouse in the title and wondered if we needed to start a pot for bail money! LOL! Nice puzzle, LJ.
