Old Jail Bed and Breakfast

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Old Jail Bed and Breakfast

The southern building is reportedly Minnesota’s oldest jail building, and the northern building housed a funeral home in the 1800s. Now an inn, as one would imagine there is plenty of ghostly activity here. Later during the Prohibition era, when the former funeral home was a haberdashery, there was a back room that opened into a tunnel leading to a bootleggers’ spot. The tunnel is still in existence. Haunts reported on the premises include a boy who shows up on floors 2 and 3, and a woman’s apparition on floor 3.

  1. Do you have a male manaquin that is positioned to look like he is standing looking out the window facing the motel? Dressed in Civil War era garb? Just wondering, we were driving past one night and I thought that must be a cool museum piece…if not, im a tad bit creeped out
