Old Turner County Jail, 1906, Ashburn

Though typical in design for many South Georgia jails of its day, the old Turner County jail is anything but these days. The City of Ashburn repurposed  the building as a tourist attraction, and it now houses The Crime and Punishment Museum. It’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in town.

    I grew up in
    Turner County, just down the road in Sycamore, Ga.
    I love this site and look forward to receiving every picture and especially the comments.
    Does anyone know if the Last Meal Cafe, is still open in 2011?
