Old time jail torn down

Posted:

WEST UNION (KWWL) -- A piece of history came tumbling down in Fayette County.

Crews are tearing down the old Fayette County jail in West Union. The building dates back to the 1930's. The county just built a new jail a few years ago and decided it was too expensive to keep the old jail as an historic building. The space will be turned into extra parking for the county courthouse.
