Squirrel Cage Jail

Serving as the Pottawattamie County Jail for 84 years, Squirrel Cage Jail is now a member of the National Register of Historic Places. This historic jail was built in 1885 and used until 1969 and then acquired by the Council Bluffs Park Board a few short years later so that it could be preserved as a piece of city and county history.

Located in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the idea and patent for the jail came from William H. Brown and Benjamin F. Haugh of Indiana, which is where one of the other unique jails is located. The jail in Council Bluffs has been preserved and converted into a museum as a unique piece of history. Tours of the facility are available daily, with the exception of Mondays.
