The Old Jailhouse In This Tiny Georgia Town Has An Incredible And Spooky History
We always find those special slices of Georgia history so darn fascinating. There are so many small spots and overlooked places that have woven together the fabric of our state throughout the years. But what’s even more is when these historic spots also have a disturbing tale attached to it. This one-of-a-kind old rock jail in Greensboro has an incredible history worth knowing, but also one that is quite chilling. As the oldest standing masonry jail in Georgia, this is one spot you do not want to miss.
