About this Exploration:

City Jail circa 1924
All the Comforts of Home!  This 12' x 15' structure served as the Lecompton City Jail from 1892 until 1902.  It replaced the original jail that had been built in 1859.  It has a wooden door and floor and two small barred windows.  The furnishings were elementary:  straw ticking for bed, chair or stool, bucket for "necessities".  With all this, who would want to go home!
