The Montgomery County Rotary Jail opened in 1882 as a solution to housing prisoners safely, efficiently and humanely. It was the first rotary jail constructed in the United States. It has a round two-story cellblock on a turntable that is rotated by a handcrank. There were eventually eighteen rotary jails constructed in the U.S. Today, it is the only operational rotary jail in the country.
