The Scott County Jail is one of the oldest buildings in Scott County, and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The jail was built in 1904, using large sandstone blocks from the local area; each block measures 5x4x3 feet thick. The facility, which housed around 50 inmates, was in use for much of its century-long history before closing its doors to inmates in 2008. Today, History, Highways, and Haunts, LLC operates a historical museum inside of the jail, and tours include general history tours, flashlight tours, ghost hunts, and public and private paranormal tours.
