Fauquier History Museum at the Old Jail

The Fauquier History Museum at the Old Jail is located in the old Fauquier County prison complex, which includes two jails; one built in 1808 and the other in 1823. In 1966, the complex was closed and taken over by the Fauquier Historical Society to be used as a history museum.
Visitors to the Fauquier History Museum at the Old Jail experience a wide variety of displays. Our exhibits cover the history of the jails, but also delve into many aspects of Fauquier County history from Pre-Columbian times through the mid twentieth century.
