Built: N/A | Abandoned: N/A

Grayson Oklahoma was one of the fifty original All African-American towns located in Oklahoma and one of only thirteen remaining. The town was formerly known as Wildcat and was bustling in the day. Unsure of when this hoosegow was built it is made of rock similar to that of the Tamaha Jail and looks to have had the roof replaced at some point. It has two windows placed at the back and two doorways where the cell doors would have been.
