While looking for the “coffee pot” we stumbled upon this quaint 1920’s restored jail. This small concrete building built in 1925 has been restored by the Kingsburg Historical society and is open what I assume to be 24 hours a day as we visited at 0700 on a Sunday morning and the door was open for visitors.
On the exterior of the back wall is a humorous painting showing a daring jail break. The interior has an office space and two jail cells (all three spaces are occupied). Each area has a detailed diorama to give a sense of what it was like to be in jail in a small burg in the 20th century. It was utilized by the city from opening in 1925 up until the 1970’s.
There are various newspaper displays located within the cell block detailing the history of the jail. There are also post cards for sale. While visiting be sure to drop a couple dollars in the pot belly stove to help with the cost of maintaining this attraction.
When in Kingsburg this is well worth a visit.

The building is closed during the pandemic but is cute from the outside with the breakout mural on one side and the history on the other. Tells of a time in history when jails were not always this well thought out and built. Worth a look.

All the times I've visited Kingsburg, and only this year did I stumble upon the Historic Kingsburg Jail! I was wandering down the main street, Draper Street, which has many alleys that cut through mid-block, some of which are being turned into dining areas or covered walkways where one can just sit for a moment. In one of the alleys, George Boyle Way, there was an informational sign which led me to the other end of the short alley. This opened up onto an area where I found the base of the Coffee Pot Water Tower, a large public park and the back of the fire department. And, the Historic Kingsburg Jail! A small white block building, with a delightful and well done painting of an escape in progress, I found a building that's a small museum of local law enforcement in the early 1900s. The building is open apparently 24 hours a day, and is video monitored for security - but it is the original jail, and is as hard-looking to break INTO as it was to break out of, mural notwithstanding . . . The building consists of a whole 2 jail cells and a small office, all off a small hallway heated by an old fashioned stove. Thick - VERY thick! - walls give a cool environment when sunny out - probably as cold in the winter?! The cells and office have been turned into dioramas by volunteers, and the effects are cool! A few articles posted around the walls flesh out the early history of the jail and a few of the local law enforcement men who kept Kingsburg safe in those early years - two of whom lost their lives in such service. Overall, the Kingsburg Historical Society has done a great job of keeping a small, out of the way building from simply being closed up and left to decay. Their efforts are worth a quick side trip, and I'm glad I stumbled upon this hidden gem of history!
