Fauquier History Museum at the Old Jail
The Old Jail Museum, located in the heart of downtown Warrenton, Virginia, is the home of a small local history museum operated by the Fauquier Historical Society. The Fauquier Historical Society traces its roots to a group of community activists and local historians who came together in 1964 to save the historic Old Jail from destruction. In addition to restoring the jail, they worked to create a local history museum and research room within the old building. The historical society also offers a research room that is very useful for genealogists and those interested in local history.
This historic jail was built in 1808 and holds the collection of the county historical society as well as a small museum
