There’s a Hotel in Indiana Where the Rooms Are Old Jail Cells
Would you stay the night in an old jail cell?
I was scrolling through Facebook and saw a friend of mine share a video about the Old Jail Inn. It's located in Rockville Indiana, about a 2.5 hour drive from Evansville. It's a hotel that used to be the Parke County Sheriffs Office & Jail that ran from 1879-1998. What intrigued me most when I saw this place wasn't that the building had a cool history, it's the fact that the actual hotel was built into the jail and the rooms are actual cells.
I enjoy travelling and some of my favorite memories are staying in quirky places (I mean I've even stayed at a hostel in Alaska). However I think an old jail cell tops the list of most quirky places I've seen. I mean the doors of the "rooms" are the actual barred cell doors. While I'm not sure I'm quite brave enough to stay in a jail cell for a night, there's a wine bar in the bottom of the Inn where the old drunk tank used to be, and I could definitely see myself hitting that up.
