Do You Wish To Investigate The Old Jail or Speakeasy?

Are you or your group interested in investigating The Old Blackford County Jail?  Maybe you wish to investigate the Ervin-Campbell Speakeasy right on the square? We would love to lock you away from the night!

There are a few things you should know….

OVERNIGHT INVESTIGATION INFO

• Up to 8 people
• 16 years of age or older or 14 years of age and accompanied by PARENT WITH PROOF OF BIRTH CERTIFICATE
• We have waivers (on site) that everyone must sign in order to investigate.
• Government Issued ID REQUIRED

This isn’t something we wanted to do, but with gas prices going through the roof (and the cost of everything else), we are going to add a $25 surcharge to all future overnight bookings beginning on June 15. Prices for overnights will remain the same at all locations. You will see the surcharge added on as a separate item on your invoice. Hopefully, this is a very temporary situation. We want to thank all our guests, past and future, for your understanding. We will as always work to ensure your visit is an amazing experience. Once gas drops back down to under $4 per gallon, we will remove the surcharge. Current bookings will not be affected by the surcharge.
