Old Truckee Jail Museum

Truckee’s historic jail is one of only a few surviving 19th century jailhouses of its kind in the West and one of the few remaining original buildings in Truckee. The old Bastille was used continuously from 1875 until May 1964, and ably withstood the many fires that swept the town in its early days. Located: One block north of Commercial Row near the corner of Spring and Jibboom Streets in historic downtown Truckee.
