This old jail in Chester was constructed in 1914 and housed those deemed unlawful by Chester County through the first half of the twentieth century. In 1981 the building was converted by the Chester County Historical Society into a museum reflecting the county’s cultural history. The museum had operated previously from the basement of the county courthouse, which sits directly in front of the old jail.
