With bars but no windows the mosquitos were nasty. A fire in the 1940's burned out the wooden portion. The rest was left as a tourist attraction.

You don't do "BORING" do you Ron? It's wonderful, but ooooooo the thought of the midges. I wouldn't go within 30 yards of it ;-)))

Warm wishes, Lesley

Hi Lesley. We've been coming to Anna Maria now for 7 years and since early on I'd heard of this old jail and have seen photos of it but it was only yesterday I learned of its location. I'm going to e-mail you a pic of the plaque that provides more info on the old jail.

Regards, Ron

Hoàng Khai Nhan, Not a very humane jail is it? Thanks for your visit. Ron

Hi nguyentran: I think it's a long time since anyone was forced into a visit. :-))
