Hidden Gems

The Old Gaol, constructed of granite from a local quarry, was built in 1807 when the Superior Court of Greene County suggested that jail was necessary. It is the oldest masonry jail still standing in the state. Patterned after European bastilles, the Old Gaol consists of downstairs cells that look like those of the catacombs with chains that allowed prisoners to be locked to the walls. Prisoners had beds of straw, a tin bucket they used as a toilet, and one candle that provided the only light. There was no heat or ventilation in those cells although those arrested for non-violent crimes were housed upstairs where there was light. The gallows and trap door remain as they were when they were used from 1735 to 1924. You can find the Old Gaol on East Greene Street in Greensboro.
