This was the third Allegan County Jail built, and replaced the jail which had been used since 1862.

HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS: The sheriff's wife traditionally made home-cooked meals for all the inmates. Many items from the community have been donated to the museum. Many inmates passed through this jail as guests of the county for their criminal offenses. For those hard to handle troublesome inmates, a solitary confinement hole, called the `hot box,'' was used to discipline and ultimately curtail bad behavior. MANIFESTATIONS: A female entity, thought to be one of the sheriffs' wives is still on duty. OR perhaps, an entity connected to one of the donated items is going about her business in this house. Footsteps are heard coming from the upstairs area; in the sheriff's family bedrooms, especially the master bedroom. A mannequin placed in the display found in the master bedroom, mysteriously switches its clothes by itself, with no help from the living. A small apparition is seen busily working in the kitchen and moving around the dining room area. Some guests of the county are still are serving time in this jail. The living who have toured the museum, or have been part of investigations, have been touched by unseen presences in the cell areas. A floating streak of light was seen in the solitary confinement hole. STILL HAUNTED? Yes indeed! Kathy Conders of the Michigan Paranormal Encounters has felt the changing energies in the building, and has led paranormal investigations of this place, with some interesting results and observations. A third ghost hunting investigation is planned for October 26th and 27th, as part of 2007 Allegan Paranormal Conference.
