Historic Jail Tours

Due to the current covid COVID-19 restrictions in place, the LCGPS has decided to not hold Historic Jail Tours in 2021. Thank you for your support and patronage, we hope to be back in 2022!

This historic jail is overseen by the Licking County Governmental Preservation Society (LCGPS) which is tasked to restore the old jail and promote its history.
The building, which is notable for its castle-like facade and roof turrets, was designed by J.W. Yost and opened its doors to its first offenders in November of 1889.

Take a historic stroll through the jail with a knowledgeable tour guide and learn the history of this beautiful structure!

Historic Tours take place on every Final Friday from May to August.
Hours Open: 5-8pm
Adults: $10.00
Children under 12: FREE

*Tickets available at the door
*Collectible merchandise is also available for purchase onsite

Hope to see you there!
