Old jail museum in Albion, Indiana, Noble County.

I seen this roof and had to know what it was. The man we were talking to told us it was the Old Jail Museum....of course it was not open. It was well worth walking an extra block or two to take a few photos. I could not believe it had been a jail.

I was going to title this post something along the lines of 'A man's home is his castle' but decided against it. And I thought about spreading the posts out over a couple of days but will just post the best ones here. The above part shows the jail ....

It was constructed in 1876, to house the convicts and to house the Sheriff's office and to also serve as his home. I cannot imagine living right alongside the inmates.
Wonder what it felt like to call this home?
