Marble City Jail

Marble City Jail

Location Class:
Built: ~1911 | Abandoned: ~1950s
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: John Rupp

There was a jail previously in Marble City before this one, but it burned to the ground in 1910. This gives us a pretty good idea that this job was built either within the next year or soon thereafter. It is a classic pour-in-place calaboose, it consists of a single cell with a toilet and a bunk bed for two occupants. The jail held miscriants and drunks within the town and probably wasnt used very often.

In 1997 Marble City bought the two plots of land at $400 apiece that the Marble City jail sat on. The plan was to reinforce the concrete structure and list it on the National Register of Historic Places but was never listed.
