“The cursed hand print won't disappear..”

Wander the Old Jail's cold hallways, past Cell 17 with its  mysterious handprint on the wall, under the gallows on  which seven of the accused Molly Maguires were put to  death, and down into the eerie dungeon. And don't forget to check out our new book, "Ghosts of  the Molly Maguires?", a collection of visitors' first-hand  accounts of strange happenings in the Old Jail.

So screwed up. You can actually see the handprint, what exactly it is I don't know but there is defiantly a handprint on the wall. It's also an amazing historical building, so whether you like ghosts, history, or both you'll love it here.

Great looking jail- OLD! The tour was a video with poor sound quality and then a guided tour by a young boy of about 10. He was knowledgeable but I had trouble hearing him, especially through the mask (darn covid). The cells and gallows were super cool, the handprint.... meh. They’re saying they cant get rid of it but then say no photos to preserve it. I think they just want to preserve the $5 photos of it in the gift shop. Despite all this, if you love history it’s worth it. Parking not rv friendly.
