Yesterday I went to jail.
The old Marshall Jail (the white building above right) to be exact. A group of folks have bought the building (there's a new, much nicer jail, elsewhere) and are hoping to turn it into space for a bed and breakfast or Airbnb type thing along with possible commercial and/or studio space.
Being fully aware of the historic resonance of the place, they're also working on a project to collect stories about the jail and especially about the late, legendary E.Y. Ponder -- the High Sheriff of Madison County who didn't wear a gun or a uniform.
