Old Colquitt County Jail, 1915, Moultrie


This is one of the best examples of a “Citadel Style” jail in Georgia. It now serves as the headquarters for the Moultrie-Colquitt Chamber of Commerce.

      It’s not a noose hanging, but a black metal ring hanging from the ceiling. The really creepy thing is that they built an elevator later in the building and when you step off of the elevator, you actually have to step onto the drop door!!! The handle used to open drop door is still in place as well. I have a picture from Halloween of us standing in the area…pretending to hang a friend…lol.
