Cherokee National Prison


category : Historic Buildings
Cherokee National Prison This sandstone building was erected in 1874 and originally had three stories. The third story was removed in 1925. The building and grounds were once enclosed by a high board fence, and gallows stood on the west side of the enclosure. At statehood, Cherokee County began using this as a jail until a new county jail was built a few years ago.
