Attraction Info

History Museums

The Old Jail Museum, built in 1871, was the home of the hanging of the seven Molly Maguires. Right before their hanging deaths, while probably innocent of the charges, one of them placed their hand on the wall, and despite numerous attempts to remove it, the handprint remains today.
