Haunted Overnight in The Old Jail

Every Saturday Night 9:30PM-?



3353 Main St Barnstable, MA

Structural, documentary and archaeological evidence suggests that the Jail was constructed circa 1690-1700 by Barnstable County as ordered by the Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay Colony Courts and under the leadership of Sheriff Bassett. The Barnstable Jail was constructed on a piece land just west of the town center. The jail was moved around and attached to the rear of an early 18th century, two-story, five-bay house sometime later in the early 18th century. There was evidence to support this from a court directive  written in 1757 ordering the county of Barnstable to erect a new "gaol". The new "gaol" was never erected and the old jail was improved and used to until at least 1820 until the new stone jail was built in the center of town. The Jail was moved to 3353 Main Street on March 1st 1972.
