restoring old jail
STANFORD - City Council members are looking into the possibility of working behind bars, but they won't be under a sentence. The historic jail behind City Hall might be receiving more of the council's attention, after Mayor Eddie Carter proposed during Thursday's regular meeting that they look into restoring the building.
The small jail museum could include memorabilia from the police department and old photos, said Carter.
Gooch said was discussed the cost the meeting and were told no grants would be applied for to fund the project, . The single-cell jail could be refurbished into a small museum at minimal cost to the city using volunteer labor, proposed Carter.
According to Gooch, the council members did not seem to be concerned about the project as long as it did not use grant funding slated for other restoration projects.
