The Publick Gaol (Jail) Interior, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia

The Publick Gaol (jail) at Colonial Williamsburg is an impressive structure, though not very large.  Above, the courtyard between the four cells and the front wall is presented.  Below, is the interior of a cell with its heavily barred windows and toilet facilities in the corner.  On a hot, humid Virginia Summer day, it certainly would not have been the place to be. Among the celebrated "guests" at the gaol were some of Blackbeard's crew.

A beautiful view I would only want to see from the outside looking in. I can't imagine living in there.

It's a beautiful building and another one that we didn't see during our visit to Williamsburg.
