Old Licking County, Ohio Jail tour...................

If you have seen the above photo (stolen from Newark Advocate) you are old and most likely arrested for public drunkenness between 1889-1987.

This Friday from 4-8pm as part of the Newark Downtown Association's Final Friday celebration, the old County Jail will be open for tours. This is a unique opportunity to view a little of Licking County, Ohio's history. There will be a small tour charge with the funds going towards the jails preservation.

It will be your decision to make if we treat/punish criminals the way they should be treated today. Click here to read the interesting article by the Newark Advocate and view other photos.
