Oldest “Hanging Jail” in Louisiana

Deridder’s Gothic-looking “hanging Jail” is one of the most distinctive of its type in the US. Its collegiate Gothic architectural style features shallow arches, dormer windows, and a central tower. The iron bars in most of the windows give the structure an eerie appearance. Inside, there is a spiral staircase that leads up to three floors of jail cells, each with a toilet, shower, lavatory and window. When the jail was in use, prisoners could be seen waving from the barred windows. This unique jail was used until 1982, when a court action forced it to close. In 1981 it was put on the National Register of Historic Places, along with several other buildings in DeRidder.
