Very interesting to us. I don’t think my little little kids enjoyed it as much but it would be interesting I would say for anyone seven or eight years old and up. Jake, the tour guide was very animated and interesting though.

Our tour guide was great. She was amusing, and very informative. She gave us a lot of information about things that happened in the 1800’s, how the jail was moved to that location. Ladies couldn’t not wear dresses above their knees, and would be punished in a cage.

Not very informative

The tour guide provided information about 2 main people, the sheriff who ran the jail and 1 inmate that was executed there. We were expecting to learn more about the history of the jail. Many important details about leasing convicts, the huge number of Black inmates executed for minor crimes and the reasons for its closure were not mentioned.
