  • It's a small jail with about 6 cells but it's worth a quick stop. Will probably take about 10 min. Cells are dark, but one is lit so you can see the inside and how they used to keep prisoners.

  • The Jail is located in downtown Monterey adjacent to numerous hotels that now have obscured the true importance of this place. Unless you are a devout history buff, I would recommend that you skip...

  • Right next to Holton Hall, historical significance for California history. Great little museum.
  • Historical building, nice place to visit.
