Constructed in 1902, this two-story fireproof facility was built to replace the previous two-story log jail. The Paul Jail and Manufacturing Company of St. Louis, Missouri constructed the fail for $5,000. Romanesque influences such as the arched windows and door openings with an extended central bay enhance the exterior appearance of the building. The original prefabricated iron cells, with unique corner fireplaces, are located on the second floor. The jail served the county until 1975. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 13, 1986.
