1910 Gila Jail

The Old Gila County Jail and Sheriff’s Office in Globe was featured on Ghost Adventures. Built on the site of the original gallows it is allegedly haunted by the spirits of former inmates. Throughout its life there has been numerous inmate suicides and murders within its walls. 

Many people that have visited the jail have witnessed strange things that can’t be explained. Loud bangs and footsteps are often heard on the second floor. Eerie shadowy figures have also been witnessed throughout the building. Visitors have also reported cold spots, unexplained lights, and being physically touched.

Inmate Kingsley Olds, who was awaiting trial for the murder of his employer’s two little girls, was assassinated in the as he lay in his cell. He supposedly haunts his old cell and apparitions of the murdered girls have been witnessed. Some believe it is the spirit of an inmate who leaped to his death while heading to trial.
