Historic Gross Point Jail

Ongoing
Lower Level

The Gross Point Village Hall had it all: clerk's office, fire department, and police department—including four jail cells. Thanks to this restoration you can find out how it felt to be locked up in one of the gloomy old basement cells. (Kids of all ages love this exhibit!)

In the adjoining cell, Early Policing in Wilmette and Gross Point features antique equipment like handcuffs and a billy club.
