Gleeson Jail Museum

Cochise County

11250 North High Lonesome Rd.
Gleeson, AZ 85610
United States



The historic Gleeson Jail was built in 1910 when the copper mining town of Gleeson was booming. In its heyday, Gleeson had a population of 1,500 residents. When the mines played out, folks left and today Gleeson is a ghost town. You can still see remnants of the hospital, school, and a few other buildings. The Gleeson Jail houses a museum filled with newspaper articles, artifacts, and memorabilia from back in "the day."
