Crawfordsville Rotary Jail (Historic)



DescriptionRatingInfo
Inside the rear half of this relatively unassuming building sits a two-story rotating drum divided into sixteen wedge-shaped cells. Access to individual cells was granted by rotating the entire structure (manually, using a simple hand crank) until the desired cell faced the exit. The front half of the building served as the residence of the Montgomery County Sheriff and his family. This rotary jail in Crawfordsville, Indiana was the FIRST of six known to have been built in the United States, one of only three still standing, and the ONLY one still operating (as a museum...but the drum can still be rotated by hand).
