Squirrel Cage Jail Museum

The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that our very own Squirrel Cage Jail Museum, which is owned and operated by the Historical Society of Pottawattamie County, is now an official ISSDA Museum for the Iowa State Sheriffs and Deputies Association (ISSDA).  The Squirrel Cage Jail will retain its formal name and distinction, however “unofficially” it will also now be known as the ISSDA West Museum. 

The museum is located at 226 Pearl Street in Council Bluffs, Iowa and the staff and volunteers are ready and willing to help you “take a step back in time”.

 If you haven’t been to the Squirrel Cage Jail lately, or like some people who have never visited at all, it’s time to plan a trip!
