Eufaula Jail

City/Town:
Location Class:
Built: ~1902 | Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Katrina Bennett

The Eufaula Jail is one of the best examples of a calaboose resembling that of the Shamrock and Cherryvale Jails. Built approximately in 1902 it is a longer and bigger calaboose than typically seen. It has a hallway in the middle and a cell on both ends. Typically each cell would have a bunk bed to allow for four occupants at one time. Although it seems it was rarely needed for that many, reports in 1903 stated the police court was quiet and the calaboose was gathering cobwebs.
