Whether you live in Indianapolis or are just visiting, it's certainly worth heading for an hour along the I-74 to get to Crawfordsville to visit this attraction.
Rotary jails were a common architectural style employed towards the end of the 19th century across the American Midwest. The jails are of a special design that allows only one cell to be accessed at a single time. Of these rotary jails, there are only 8 of them to feature on the National Register of Historic Places and the one in Crawfordsville, Indiana, is the only one that still operates. Of these 8 jails, only 4 still stand, so if you'll be missing out if you don't make the time to visit!
The rotary jail now serves as a museum and also includes the Tannenbaum Cultural Center where visitors can learn more about the culture of the state of Indiana.
