You Can Tour The Quirkiest Jail In The Country Right Here In Iowa
Iowa is home to some pretty strange sights. For one, we’ve got a ton of world’s largest things… from rotating ears of corn, to cement bulls, to enormous fiberglass strawberries. Well, you can add country’s strangest jail to the list of weird Iowa attractions. The Pottawattamie Coutny Squirrel Cage Jail is one of only 3 rotary jails still standing, and it’s the largest and most historic. This odd jail is worth a visit!
The Squirrel Cage Jail is located at 226 Pearl St., Council Bluffs, IA 51503. You can tour the jail and museum during their open hours, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April through October.
