Oldest Wooden Jail in America

Saves: 1

Standing next to the Coast Guard Heritage Museum, the Oldest Wooden Jail in America was built in 1690, by order of the Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay Colony courts. It could only hold about 6 prisoners which was all that was needed in those days. It's considered one of the most haunted jails in America, having imprisoned the Witch of Wellfleet - who was apparently killed in later years by a mob with pitchforks.
