Canada's Smallest Jail

We traveled all the way to Coboconk, Ontario and were able to see "Canada's Smallest Jail."
This jail house was vacant for 50 years before it was purchased by the Coboconk New Horizons Club in 1974. Since the construction of the jail in 1899, the limestone walls that were mined from a local quarry and the iron bars remain unchanged. It is now a designated heritage site and museum.
With only 2 cells and a single wardens office, this is truly a very small jail!
