What We Do

We collect, record, preserve, display and interpret our exhibits for the publics benefit, education and enjoyment.

Our New Sign

The new Clay County 1890 Jail Museum and Heritage Center sign was put in place on September 1, 2021.  We think the sign will draw attention to our beautiful historical building.
