Youngstown Jail – 1913

Always an eye-catcher to visitors! This jail cell was originally located in Youngstown (35 miles east of Hanna) in their fire hall and ceased being used in 1961. Every artifact here has a story behind it, and this one is no exception. In 1929 there was a tale of a desperado escaping through the hole designed for the passing of food. This man successfully fled the police, hopped on a train, and was never seen again. Or was he? His daring feat is always a crowd pleaser.
