Paranormal Tours &
Private Investigations

Built in 1904, this former jail housed some of the worst inmates from Scott County. With a history that includes the unsolved murder of a sheriff, lynching of inmates, and numerous men and women housed within its cells, the walls of the Historic Scott County Jail have a storied history to tell. Paranormal enthusiasts are welcome to tour this facility in an attempt to make contact with its reported resident spirits on a private paranormal investigation, a private ghost hunt or a public ghost hunt led by one of our professional paranormal investigators.
