A cell built for two August 30, 2010

Posted by Ron Warnick in Attractions.

Mark and Sarah Owens of TravelShorts.com recently took a three-week trip on Route 66.

Here’s a clip of an odd but fascinating attraction that gets frequently overlooked — the two-cell jailhouse that was built more than a century ago in Gardner, Ill.

Nice video of this attraction.

The Route 66 community Cuba, MO has what we call our 1908 Calaboose. I am not sure if it was used as a one or two-celled jail.
One or our Eagle Scouts did a little restoration on it for his Eagle Scout project.
