Nice piece of Mariposa history. If you enjoy history then stop for sure. If you don't it is just a short visit required.

This would be one of the earliest jails in California. There's not much to see that the photo doesn't show but if you stop at the courthouse this is only 2 blocks down the street. You do want to stop at the courthouse!

This jail is located at highest place of Mariposa but is very small, but however, it have an interesting history. If you are staying at Mariposa, after a tour in Yosemite park is worth to go over there.

If you're passing through, this is interesting to see from the outside, but we could not see or go inside.

We walked around the entire outside of this building and marveled that anyone could ever have escaped from it, but we learned they had. It had very thick stone walls and few openings. Would have liked to see the inside.
