Old Jail, Leary

Thanks to Don King, former police chief of Leary, I can confirm that this was the old jail/calaboose. Mr. King writes: This is the old jail. It was once located where the library is now. The old jail was purchased by the peanut mill and moved there. The library (block building) was once the jail that replaced the wooden jail structure.

    Nice discovery!

  2. I am a former police chief of Leary. This is the old jail. It was once located where the library is now. The old jail was purchased by the peanut mill and moved there. The library (block building) was once the jail that replaced the wooden jail structure.

    • Thank you so much for confirming. We’ve had a spirited, and worthwhile debate about it on Vanishing Georgia (Facebook) today. But I’m glad to know my initial assumption was correct.
