The Sentinel jail is a tiny jail that looks a bit different from other Oklahoma tiny jails. It features thicker walls than the typical calaboose, two cells that have steel doors, and two small steel barred windows. It has a slanted roof and was constructed of concrete around ~1915. Although a “fancy” modern jail it was seldom used, a local newspaper reporting in 1917 that the jail had been without a tenant for so long that the “mind of the oldest inhabitant runneth not that far back.”
