  • This place is great! I never knew that there were ever such thing as the Colorado Rangers! They allow you to tour the jail, showing you some history as well as the men's, women's, and, yes, children's parts of the jail. For those of you who are handicapped, they may have parking for you but from there you are on your own. They don't have a ramp or elevator or any other accessable features. The tour was not that big for as many inmates as they could hold. Take the tour it is worth the few bucks it takes to get in. Oh, and just in case you are into the paranormal, the ghost busters have been there too... Tour at your own risk!
  • I worked in this facility as a young law man. The preservation work they have completed is impeccable. Be sure and visit separate women's holding facility upstairs.
