The older portion of the Scott County Jail (the north section) was built in 1898 and originally was lit with gas lamps. Scott County has renovated the facility numerous times in the last 100 years. In 1983, an addition was added to the building, attaching it to the Courthouse to the south.
The entire structure (excluding the Tremont annex) is approximately 45,000 square feet on four floors. This downtown facility has a licensed capacity of 134 beds. Meals for this facility and the Tremont annex are prepared at the kitchen here and transported to the other location. This facility has a unique "outdoor" recreation yard, not visible or accessible to the outside.
