Old Faunsdale Jail at Faunsdale, AL (c. 1907)

This tiny one-room jail was built about 1907, the year that Faunsdale, AL was incorporated as a town.  It is the oldest separate jail in Marengo County and the oldest public building in Faunsdale.  It was used until 1955.  The walls of the jail, almost a foot thick,  are constructed with brick.  The window opening and entrance door have segmental arches.  Inside the jail is only one cell, an iron bar cage in the corner.  Inside this cage is an iron cot.

This old jail is located just behind the old water tower in Faunsdale (GPS coordinates N32.457833,W87.593167).
