|San Bernardino's original jail|
The house itself is a fine example of a Victorian dwelling and was first built as a "spec" house by a judge who sold it to another judge.
This was in the days when San Bernardino was a respectable place and not run down like it is today - well, most of it.
The decoration around the bottom and the top of the front deck was ordered from a catalogue after the house was built.
The house dates from 1891, and it is a great place to spend some time looking at how things were back in the day!
