Darbyville Jail

The Darbyville Jail exhibit honors all of Baker County's law enforcement officers and particularly the memory of county sheriff Joe Newmans.

 It was built by businessman W. W. Bill Gay, a major patron of Heritage Park and former employer of Mr. Newmans.

Among the jail's historic photographs and mementos is a signed confession of two men convicted in the murder of a farm couple which preceded the last official hanging recorded in the state of Florida.
