Looked for something to do while waiting for our hotel room. Found this only 2 miles from our hotel. My husband says it was the best $5 he has ever spent. It dates way back and has so much history and stories. The woman giving the tour was very knowledgeable and obviously very proud of the building and its history.... 更多
This tour was excellent. Our guide knew the history and told other stories. He was very knowledgeable about the area. He gave us tips on what to see and where to eat in Chambersburg.
We had a great time exploring the Old Jail and learned a lot of history while there. It was interesting to see that Alcatraz jail in San Francisco was built similar to this old jail. Having been to both it was neat to see.
Wonderful private tour by a very knowledgeable young man, whose name escapes me. We especially enjoyed the prisoners notes made on the cell walls.
The guided tour was very interesting and educational. When I went, the guide was an older lady who knew a lot about the community; she was very helpful.
The Old Jail was easy to find and lots of free parking just past the jail in the parking lot behind the library. The building is larger than it looked and I was pleasantly surprised by the tour - our tour guide Jeff was fantastic. Jail was in use until the 1970s but parts of the jail are considerably older.... 更多
The Old Jail is a gem of an attraction for the history buff, especially local Franklin County history. The displays and exhibits are thoughtfully done and the building is very interesting not only for its structure but its history. It is well worth the trip!
