While little history or records could be found on the Washington Jail it fits the popular “pour-in-place” method of making calabooses from the early 1900s. The small one-room jail is fitted with heavy iron gratings over the two small windows and the door at the front of the calaboose. Two pipes that stick out of the wall appear to be evidence of some sort of amenity at one point, perhaps a sink or a toilet.
