Old Greene County Gaol (Jail)

E. Depot St.
Greeneville, TN 37743

Originally built in 1804-05, the stone jail was in the middle of Depot Street near the Andrew Johnson Tailor Shop. Rumored to be the oldest jail in the state of  Tennessee, the rear of the jail was nearly touching Richland Creek so the creek water would flow through the jail. In 1838, the jail was moved stone by stone to its present site.
