Old Monterey Jail

The Old Monterey Jail was constructed in 1854 and served as the City Jail until 1956. The jail was an impenetrable fortress for its inmates; no one ever escaped from the thick granite walls during its history. The building is open to the public daily.

The Old Jail is located next to Colton Hall. The Jail is open daily 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day. Map and directions.
