The Little Bastille


 Florence County Jail – “The Little Bastille”; Florence, Wisconsin

“This unique building is part of the Courthouse Square that is on the National Register of Historic Sites. The Jeffris Family Foundation felt the jail was worthy of being saved. This little two room jail is a jewel in the crown of the Courthouse Square. It remains an example of the proud people who settled Florence County and the people who value its history.”
