Historic Pottawattamie County Squirrel Cage Jail *

www.thehistoricalsociety.org/jail.htm

The Squirrel Cage Jail in Council Bluffs, Iowa, served as the county jail from 1885 - 1969 The design and size of the Historical Pottawattamie County Squirrel Cage Jail, make it a one - of - a - kind structure. It was one of 18 revolving ("squirrel cage", "human rotary", "Lazy Susan") jails built. It is the only three - story one ever built. Built at a cost of about $30,000, the jail has three floors of revolving pie - shaped cells inside a cage. Today, only 3 revolving jails remain, a one-story structure in Gallatin, Mo. , A two-story jail in Crawfordsville, In. , and the unique three story in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Tour Guides routinely tell visitors NO BODY has called the Squirrel Cage Jail home since 1969. Some folks may disagree with the wording "NO BODY" may call it home, but as for spirits that's a different matter. The spirit may actually date back to the jails origin. A former jail tour guide claimed she believed the ghost to be that of J. M. Carter, the man who oversaw the buildings contruction. Mr. Carter was the first resident of the top floor apartment and according to the theory, has never left, continuing to watch over the one - of - a - kind building to this day * Information obtained
