Old Bleckley County Jail, Cochran

I haven’t been able to locate a history of this structure yet, but it was likely built around 1900-1915. Citadel-style jails like this were popular at that time. I know it was in use as the county building inspector’s office as late as 2008.

    What a shame that the brickwork was painted over with white. Cheapens the stature of the building. Agree with the time frame of construction.
