Council Bluffs, Iowa EXTRA

From the interstate, I saw a sign for the Union Pacific Museum AND the Pottawattamie Squirrel Cage Jail.

Golden Spike
Lincoln was in this building in 1859

The jail was encased in cement an 4 stories high. It was a jail for almost 100 years. They quarters for the jail keeper.

A great stop! Peace out Tres

  1. T-Dawg! Council Bluffs is just across the bridge from Bellevue, NE, my high school stomping grounds! I’m so glad you checked out the Union Pacific museum. Ride on!
