Waking up on Saturday we decided to head off the campsite and see what we might find in and around the area. To get anywhere you drive down Rt. 3 through Lancaster where we saw the Old Lancaster Jail was open and you could walk through it. We decided to stop and take a look-seeBuilt in 1820 the old jail was just two rooms on the lower level and another two on the upper level. Each had a fireplace for warmth and actually were rather large in size. While the rooms only had one window on each side, they are larger than some I have seen in other historic jails. I wanted to find out more about the significance of the jail but a Google search provided very little history about its use and if there is any prominent Virginia history linked to it. I am assuming not as in Virginia anything with historical significance has much information available on the web.Still it was an interesting building that I enjoyed seeing.I hope we always take advantage of the area we are in and explore as this is one if my favorite things to do.
