Description:
Moving of old lock-up house down Cottrell Street, 1953. It was later a gift shop.

2/10/2006-Virgil Woodrow Huntley (1916-2018), "the Memory of Mystic," who lived on Pearl Street, shared that this building used to sit out over the river, just north of the old Community building on Holmes St. He said "it was used as a voting place and also had a jail cell or lock-up, and I am quite sure I paid my father's dues to vote there sometime between 1925 to 1933."
