Squirrel Cage - Old Pottawattamie County Jail - Real Haunt in Council Bluffs IA
- 226 Pearl St.
- Council Bluffs, IA
- (712) 323-2509
This jail features a "lazy Susan" design which makes the jail block round and the cells form individual wedges like slices in a pie. There is only one door that leads into the cells and it would be rotated by a hand crank to let prisoners in and out. This location is unique, being that it is the only three story wheel jail ever built. The wheel mechanism no longer operates but the location is now a museum and is rumored to be haunted by a former jailer.

Good experience, interesting evidence
We investigated the Squirrel Cage Jail in 2017. The place is big and we had some unexplained experiences. Visit our website and YouTube to view some of our evidence.
