As Halloween slowly approaches there comes the age old question, what is there to do around here? For many students trick and treating is out of the question. Yet, it seems everything in Crawfordsville during Halloween is aimed at children. There are events happening out of town, but for some students, it’s hard to get a ride. Yet, there is an event happening inside town very soon: The Haunted Jail.
The Haunted Jail has been around for years, yet, many always forget about it. The jail has been in town for as long as many can remember. Yet, it holds and interesting legacy in the United States. It holds one of the last rotary jails in the country. A rotary jail acted a lot like a carousel, it rotated leaving cells to be put into different positions. In most of these prisons, due to the lay out of the cells, only one prison cell could be accessed at a time.
It holds a fascinating history and can be a nice change of pace this Halloween. For something a little different for the spookiest night of the year, the haunted jail is the place for you.
