City/Town:
Location Class:
Built: 1918 | Abandoned: N/A

Photojournalist: Neil Turnbow

The one-room jail of Stuart, Ok was built in 1918 as the proud sign states outside of the structure. Made of limestone, the stonework was done by a gentleman named John Howell. Said to be fire-proof and inescapable it was a proud moment for the town. It was only a short time later that the jail was being used, and according to the town newspaper in February of 1922, it was being used very often. Inside the jail are the remnants of the old toilet and you can peer at the town through the small square window through the eyes of an inmate.
