Rocky Butte Jail

Thanks to the Multnomah County Archives for finding and providing photos showing where the old Rocky Butte Jail was located.

Thanks also to Dan Schauer, graduate student at Portland State University, who incorporated the photos from the Multnomah County Archives and Google Earth images to help us understand where the former Rocky Butte Jail was located. [Many people assume it was located ON Rocky Butte, but it wasn't.]

There are a total of seven slides in the file below, which together illustrate where the old jail was located when the I-205 freeway was constructed.
