Nemaha County Jail, Seneca,
||The Old Nemaha County Jail and
Sheriff's Residence is not the home of the Sheriff any more but the
Nemaha County Historical Society. This building was constructed in
1879 and served as the County Jail until 1977. The oldest sheriffs residence and jail
standing in Kansas is located at 112 North Sixth Street in Seneca. The Nemaha
County Jail and Sheriff's Residence was recognized for its importance to the
community, state and nation when it was accepted to the Kansas State
Historic Registry on November 8, 2003. Click on picture to see this
building as it is today in 2004. The cupola is
missing and it was likely taken off in the tornado of 1896, just a
guess as every other cupola or steeple in the area was removed.
