Back in the day the Rowdies of Harrison Township and Springhills cooled off their tempers in the old Springhills Jail (pictured above). The Jail is now preserved in the Champaign County Historical Society Museum where a whole wing was built around it.
Visit us on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays at 809 East Lawn Avenue, Urbana and learn all about the Springhills Jail!
