Author Suellen A. Burkey will be signing copies of her book, “Tales from the Old Jail, An Informal History”. The book is the result of exhaustive research in archives at the Jail and recounts the history of the building and its “guests” from its 1818 construction until its rescue from demolition in the early 1970s. The book contains twelve chapters, focusing on subjects such as slave catchers and abolitionists, hangings, famous prisoners, the World War, and daily life. Books will be available for purchase for $16 plus tax and all proceeds benefit the Franklin County Historical Society, housed in the Old Jail, 175 East King Street, Chambersburg.
