Hamilton County Historical Museum

Hamilton County Historical Museum

The building that houses the museum served as the Hamilton County Jail from 1935 to 1990. The Museum contains a display room with exhibits and artifacts; a main room with a ribbon case, dolls, and an Edison Victrola (a type of phonograph) purchased in 1919; a ladies' room with antique clothing, dolls, and quilts; and a military room with articles from WWI and WWII. Visitors can also explore the Old Jail Kitchen, where food was prepared for inmates while the building served as an incarceration facility.
