Full description
St. Augustine’s Old Jail was built in 1891 and held prisoners for over 60 years. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this old jail is testament to a bygone age in American culture. Enjoy this compelling tour of the jail, led by an expert guide.

Glimpse the cell blocks, gallows, and sheriff’s quarters. Your guided tour includes a close-up view of the men and women’s quarters, maximum security, as well as a collection of weapons. Learn about the living conditions of the jail, and see where death-row prisoners were kept.

You will see where the sheriff and his wife and children lived right upstairs from the prisoners. Learn about how they used their kitchen to prepare meals for the inmates.

The Old Jail deputies will entertain you with tales of justice and punishment when Florida was America's southernmost frontier. You might even meet America’s most feared sheriff–Joe Perry.

This is both a fun and informative historic tour for adults and children alike.
