Museum

The goal of History, Highways, and Haunts, LLC is to establish a high quality, reputable, and interesting museum for community members and visitors to enjoy. Through the generosity of local citizens, local law enforcement and various other state and national law enforcement agency partners, the items displayed provide a glimpse of Scott County history, law enforcement and the evolution of crime and punishment as a whole. While most items will be on permanent display, temporary exhibits will periodically be added to the calendar of events.

Donor Agreement

  • Can my team have more than 8 people on the investigation?
    Yes, but each additional person over the 8, will be charged $25 per person. Due to the location size, there is a 10 person maximum.
  • If I book a private paranormal investigation, can I resell individual tickets to the general public?
    No, any team or group that books a private paranormal investigation cannot resell tickets for a profit (ie: above the amount of booking the investigation). It is allowable to sell tickets to get up to the booking fee amount, but making a profit from any investigation is expressly prohibited. If any team or group is found to be in violation of this policy, they will be asked to leave the property without a refund and/or permanently trespassed from the property.
  • Will a Historic Scott County Jail representative be on site during our investigation?
    Yes. Due to the fact that the jail is also serving as a functional museum, a representative will be onsite during the night. However, the representative will be in a closed office space and will in no way interfere with your investigation.
  • Will my team be given a tour of the jail before our investigation?
    Yes, your investigation will begin with a brief tour of the jail. You can choose whether to know the location of paranormal "hot spots" or if you just want to know the history of the jail. Should you wish to take a tour prior to your investigation, you can stop by during our daily business hours. Daytime general admission ticket prices will apply.

    Drug, alcohol, fireworks, beer, wine, tasers, or weapons of any kind are strictly prohibited.

  • How should we dress?
    The Historic Scott County Jail is a climate controlled facility with heat and AC. Please keep in mind, our facility is an historic location, built out of stone. Even with heat, the building tends to be on the cooler side. Please dress warmly if you are cold natured. We strongly recommend closed toe shoes; no flip flops or sandals.
  • Is the 2nd and 3rd floor handicapped accessible?
    No. The 2nd and 3rd floors are only accessible via a stairway, which is considered moderately strenuous.
