Jail and Sheriff's Residence


Jail and Sheriff's Residence photo of Jail and Sheriff
Constructed in 1894, this graceful Queen Anne style structure served as the Luce County jail and sheriff's residence for over seventy years. The peninsular Land Company donated the site. The architectural firm of Lovejoy and DeMar from Marquette designed this sturdy edifice from rough-hewn Jacobsville sandstone. The Luce County Historical Society rescued this building from demolition in 1975 and restored it as the Luce County Historical Museum in 1976.
