Historical Society of Pottawttamie County, Iowa
The HSPC thanks our corporate members!
Exploring and preserving the tales of real people and real life right here where we live. Some good, some bad, and some very stange.
You've been to the "Squirrel Cage" Jail museum before. Now you need to come again. Under the direction of Society vice-president Jason LeMaster board members, staff, and volunteers have worked throughout the off season to transform the 1885 building from looking like a museum into having more the feel it did during its 84 years as the Pottawattamie County jail.
The open house will run from 11 am until 4 pm. Society members are admitted free; normal admission fees apply for nonmembers.
