The old stone jail in Monticello from 1891 until it was dismantled in late 1916. Several of the occupants were there for being drunk and disorderly and some were “hobos” who arrived on the trains and asked for a night’s lodging and something to eat. They were locked in and given something to eat by the village marshall before they were turned loose the following morning to continue on their way on the next freight train.
