Constructed in 1885 and in operation as a jail until 1969, the Squirrel Cage Jail offers guests a chance to experience what life may have been like doing time (or working in) a “human-rotary” style jail. One of only three such jails of still in existence, this strange building design surely holds secrets from the past.

Not surprisingly, there are a number of reports of paranormal activity within the structure, some dating back to when the jail was still in operation. It is said a jailer from the 1950s named Bill Foster refused to use the fourth floor as his living quarters because of “strange goings-on up there,” which including footsteps when no one was up there and odd sensations when he went upstairs to investigate.

One former tour guide has claimed to have seen the spirit of J.M. Carter, the gentleman who supervised the building’s construction in 1885. He was reportedly the first resident of the fourth floor living quarters. Perhaps he has stuck around to keep an eye on things to this day.

Others have recounted seeing a full-bodied apparition, also on the top floor, who they believe may be another former jailer named Otto Gufath. Still another person stated she saw the ghost of what appeared to be a sad little girl dressed in gray, sitting inside a cell which was completely inaccessible at the time.

Over the years, visitors and employees alike have described a number of possible paranormal happenings, including feeling like they are being watched, having their clothes tugged on, hearing disembodied voices, doors opening and closing by themselves, seeing strange lights and hearing odd, unexplainable noises.

Spend some time with us and see if you can discover which spirits may still be lingering here, trying to communicate with the living – and what they might have to say about the conditions they endured at the Squirrel Cage Jail.
