Building Type Lock Up, Dwelling House
'This lock-up house, which is well situated about the centre of the village, has been built about two years. It is, however, private property rented by the county. There is but one cell; and it is 10 feet long, 9 1/2 feet wide, 9 feet high, and contains about 850 cubic feet. It opens into the kitchen of the keepers house, of which it may be said to form a part. The cell is dry and secure. It is warmed by a stove, from which there is no danger of fire, and is tolerably well lighted and ventilated. There is a guard bed and a rug for bedding.'
