Triplett Jail

Triplett Jail

Location Class:
Built: N/A | Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Elizabeth Kalinka

The Triplett Jail’s history is elusive, unfortunately, this is the case with many of the tiny jails left in the Midwest. Having documented hundred of these jails throughout Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas I see it all too often that I can’t track down a single fact about the jail before me. Most of these jails were built prior to 1930 and abandoned by the 50s and 60s after people got transferred to county jails instead.
