The Morgan County Dungeon was discovered in 1964 during excavation for the present sheriff’s office and jail. Located beneath the basement in the old jail, the dungeon contained several artifacts and is a stark reminder of how criminals were dealt with in the 19th century.
Prisoners convicted of rioting, larceny, and adultery in Morgan County between 1833 and 1839 were confined to the dungeon. The dungeon is located on Main Street in Malta, Ohio, adjacent to the Rock Hollow School.
