About this Exploration:

The Longton City Jail is a one room stone building located behind the post office.  The last person known to spend a night in the jail was in the early 1970s.  Since that time Longton has not used the site.  It is now customary to send prisoners to the county jail, located at the county seat, in Howard.

The jail was built in 1924 at a cost of $200 for materials and labor.

Stop and look inside...... beware of a stuffed dummy lying on the top metal bunk bed.  If your not aware of him in advance..... he could stop your heart!
