Historic Liberty Jail

See Photo Location

Originally built in 1833, this re-creation of the Liberty Jail once held the Mormon Prophet and leader Joseph Smith and five others. Over the winter of 1838-39, they were confined to a dungeon measuring 14 feet by 14.5 feet. They had no heat or water.

This historic jail is enclosed in a granite rotunda, making it available year-round.
