Welcome Hartford City, Indiana

The old Hartford City Jail was established in 1879. The prison was an active prison until the end of 1995. It is safe to say, the prison is still "active"!

There is also a building, right at the square that has an old speakeasy that has numerous reports of paranormal activity confirmed by many groups. Listen to the EVPs and decide. Better yet come investigate for yourself!

BOTH building are available for investigations!!
