Davenport Jail Museum

Davenport Jail Museum

This 1914 one-room county jail was used only twice. Set in the old whaling village of Davenport, it is a small reminder of rowdier times. The location is between Ocean Street and Davenport Avenue on Cabrillo Highway. It is typically open from 11AM- 4PM on the 1st Sunday of every month in the summer season.  Here is the 2013 schedule:  June 9th, July 7th, August 4th, September 8th, October 6th, and November 3rd (weather permitting) or call 429-1964 for information.
