Red Bird is one of thirteen surviving all-black towns in Oklahoma. While little is known about a lot of these tiny jails they are so fun to get and explore! This jail was built sometime in the 1930s and discontinued in the 1950s after the last two occupants escaped by chipping away the crudely cemented roof.
