    The Jail was built in 1888,and was in use until about 1990. Some parts converted into a youth center. The rest is as it was. Administration building was built about 1950. There is a courtyard in the center structure, between the east and west cell blocks. In the center of the court there is a tile floor representation of the state seal of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Above the seal hang the gallows. No shiat. This is an interior courtyard, not the large open space between the cellblocks as seen from above.
    By 1990 the overcrowding and poor condition of the jail forced it's closure. The Hamden County Corrections Dept now houses lockup in Ludlow Ma.
