Glenn Springs Jail

This seemingly quaint building in the community of Glenn Springs may once have been a jail. It is located on the property of the John C. Zimmerman House near the old Glenn Springs post office.

The small, single-room structure was constructed of squared logs with halved joints. According to the National Register, its age is unknown. Like the post office, the jail was moved from another nearby location.

The Glenn Springs Jail is listed in the National Register as part of the Glenn Springs Historic District, which says the following about the area:

Glenn Springs Historic District is located in the community of Glenn Springs, which is situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The history of the community focuses around the reputation of the mineral springs for their medicinal value and the related development of a popular resort hotel. The district contains nineteen properties, including several residences, two boarding houses, the ruins of a residence, two churches, a store, a post office, a pavilion, a cemetery, and the site of the Glenn Springs Hotel. Historically, the district represents the nineteenth and early twentieth century (ca. 1840-ca. 1940) development of Glenn Springs as a health resort and the community that grew up around it. Several buildings in the district are of local architectural significance as well, representing various vernacular and high styles of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries such as Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Queen Anne, and Bungalow.
