Rowan County Jail and Superintendent's Office
The Rowan County Jail and Superintendent’s Office was completed in 1938 with funding from the WPA. Both the jail and the supt office are constructed of local rock. The jail has crenellations decorating the top giving the appearance of a formidable castle. The superintendent’s office now houses a museum.
