We’ve had lots of folks ask for daytime tours and we’d like to invite you to tour this historic jail on the Saturday afternoon of March 24th, 2018!
There is a lot of history within the walls of this fortress and we’d like to share some of it with you!
This jail opened in 1889 and didn’t close its doors for good until 1987. Built in a Richardson-Romanesque style by renowned Ohio architect J.W. Yost, it fits in perfectly with the surrounding downtown historic district of Newark, Ohio that we see today!
This fortress is just as unique on the inside as it is on the outside! Come see for yourself!
*Tours are offered from 12-4pm and will last approximately 1 hour each. You can arrive at any time within these hours and you will be sure to have a tour!
*Tickets are available at the door by entering the front main entrance of the jail!
*Children 12 and under FREE
Collectible jail merchandise such as post cards, bracelets, t-shirts, flashlights, and tin cups are available in our gift shop as well, just to make a few!
Cash and credit cards accepted
*All proceeds to benefit the preservation & restoration efforts of the Licking County Historic Jail.
Thank you for your support,
The Licking County Governmental Preservation Society’s group of volunteers
