Springfield Police Museum at The Calaboose

Springfield Police Museum at The Calaboose is once again open to the public for First Friday Art Walk! The Calaboose, Springfield’s original jail, was built in 1891 and used until the 1940s. The historic display covers a wide variety of fascinating crimes, lawmen and relics of law enforcement past. Visitors will be chilled by the sight of the last hangman’s rope and the black hood worn by the last condemned criminal to die by hanging in 1935.  The Calaboose is a stop well worth your time – drop in on First Friday! For more information on Springfield law enforcement history, visit www.springfieldmo.gov/spd/AboutUs/history.html Open until 9 p.m. on First Fridays
