Nowadays it is placed on the National Register of Historic Places and houses a museum. To be seen are the quarters of the Sheriff, who lived adjacent to the prisoners and used the same kitchen that was used to prepare the food for the inmates. The jail held up to 72 prisoners and the male and female cells, as well as the maximum security tract, where murderers and horse thieves were confined, and the site of the gallows can be seen during a 30 minute guided tour. Opening hours: Daily 8.30 to 16.30, closed on Christmas Day Admission fee: Adult $8.10 Children (6-12 years, under 5 years free) $4.50 The museum offers free parking and a restaurant
