Then And Now: The Old Jail

Each week, Lynnfield Patch runs a photo from the files of the Lynnfield Historical Society and talks about what's there today.

Then And Now: The Old Jail

I've held on to this photo for a while because it also appeared in this year's RMLD vintage photo calendar. This is the former jail that apparently once existed in the basement of the old Lynnfield town hall. It kind of reminds me of a couple of the medieval spots I visited on a long-ago trip to Europe actually.

As , which have stood in their present forms since about 1960.
