Old Morgan County Jail - Wartburg, TN

Morgan County Jail - Wartburg, TN

Painted in a nice, relaxing light blue color with a double arch along the front (with the entrance on the left one. The two-story structure was built in 1930 and renovated in 1970.

If you like books on old county jails, there's one about Tennessee Jails published in 1979 by Paul and Sophie Crane called Tennessee's Troubled Roots. On the cover of that book is a closeup of the hand-painted message above the front door: "It Doesn't Pay to Do Wrong."
