Description

Image is a view of a shed-roofed building with three nine-pane windows and two small high windows that appear to have bars. A sign at the entrance identifies it as headquarters for the U.S. Marshall and Corporation Police. The photographer’s note on the front of the print indicate it was the Palmer “City Jail”. It appears to be a temporary and hastily constructed facility in the early days of the Matanuska Colony project in Palmer.
