OLD DELAWARE COUNTY JAIL
20 West Central Avenue, Delaware Ohio 43015
In 2021 Tri-C Ghost Hunters teamed up with the Delaware County Historical Society in Delaware, OH to bring you paranormal events to the Old Delaware County Jail, aka The Historic Jail and Sheriff’s Residence.
Constructed in 1878 by Master Architect David Gibbs of Toledo, the old Historic Jail and Sheriff’s Residence was in use until 1988 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. This beautiful, primarily Italianate structure features some Gothic Revival and Second Empire details. The 8,500 square foot building contains sixteen cells that were used for men and two used for women.
As part of the prison reform movement of which Rutherford B. Hayes championed, this building served as the sheriff’s home. The sheriff’s wife, known as the “Matron,” cooked meals and cared for the inmates.
