The Old Jail

The Old JailThe Old Jail was successfully moved on February 29, 2000, to its new location on a new concrete slab in the Southeast corner of the Valley Crescent parking lot.

We have completed restoration of the Jail exterior! Through the initial vision of Debbie Evans, the hard work of Sam DeFelice, and full funding provided by the Town of Palmer Lake, this project is essentially complete. Town Trustee for Parks & Recreation, Cindy Allen, is also noted for her unfailing support. We are indebted to them all.
