CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson County officials are envisioning that the old Jefferson County Jail someday will have a public meeting room with a kitchen that could be used by other local organizations besides county officials.
It is hoped the jail will blend much-needed county office space with history.
Some people are fascinated with the 89-year-old building's past and want areas set aside in the building to help tell its history.
The jail will have an elevator, and there were discussions at one point of having the elevator resemble a jail cell so people could get an idea what it is like to be locked in a cell, Jefferson County Commissioner Greg Corliss said.
The public will get the chance to learn about the county's plans for the old jail during a meeting today at 7 p.m. in the lower level of the Charles Town Library.
