About Us :
The Saguache County Museum occupies a building partially constructed over 125 years ago. It has functioned over the years as a school, temporary courthouse, and a residence for jailkeepers and their families. The old jail, built in 1908, is an adobe building finished with stucco. The interior has a sheriff's office, a women's or V.I.P. cell, and a large room or "bull pen" with an escape-proof maximum security "cage". This jail was used until 1958. Original graffiti done by prisoners still adorns the walls.
