April 18th and May 23rd, 1906
Woolfolk Family Papers
You are dining in what once was the old Meade County Jail. The brick structure
remains just as it did when it closed in the mid 70's.
The Jail, built in 1906 housed many unsavory characters throughout it's years.
One of the most notable was Hank Williams, Sr. Another notable name that
passed through this
area of Meade County was John Hunt Morgan (Morgan's Raiders). Outlaws Jesse
and Frank James were guests of the Old Meade County Hotel on Main Street,
which was present in the 1800's.
We do have some inmates that have decided to not leave. One being dubbed
seems to still roam the jail. From time to time you might just see or hear things
that can't be explained. If you do experience something, please let us know. We
hear the stories.
Be sure to walk around and soak in all the history that our
restaurant has to offer!!!
