Cuba Jail

Cuba Jail

Location Class:
Built: 1908 | Abandoned: 1954
Historic Designation: National Register of Historic Places (2014)
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: John Rupp

The Cuba Jail holds a special place in my heart, the look of this calaboose is enough to draw anyone in. Constructed in 1908 the building is a perfect shade of gray and displays Cuba Jail 1908 above the doorway. The area has room for the guard on duty to sit at a desk and watch over the inmates as well as two iron hanging bunks for prisoners and a stove to keep them warm in the winter.

The jail was abandoned in 1954, a common era for them to be abandoned. But citizens saw the value in their history and took the steps to get the building on the NRHP. In 2014 the nomination was accepted, the building commands respect and is ready for you to appreciate it on your next adventure.Cuba Jail
