Macomb Jail

Macomb Jail

City/Town:
Location Class:
Built: ~1900s | Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Wiley Paul

The Jail in Macomb, OK  is a single cell made of steel that was presumably built in the early 1900s. It would have held the drunk and disorderly, and others arrested for petty crimes such as theft. This kind of jail would have probably been decommissioned around the 1920-1940s time period. Sometime in its history the jail had been stolen and thought to be lost forever. Wiley Paul who works for a local wrecker service company was called years later to come retrieve the jail and was able to return the piece of history to a concrete slab outside of the town hall for display.
