Old Covington County Jail

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Old Covington County Jail

This historic jail is no longer in operation, but is rumoured to be haunted. Visitors to the jail claim to have heard voices, felt cold spots and smelt new paint, despite the fact that the building was never renovated. Others claim to have seen a figure peering out of the barred windows of the cells, but upon investigation find the building completely empty.
