Pembroke in Bryan County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Old City Jail
In 1928, the City of Pembroke purchased an 1897-vintage two-unit prefabrication cell from the old Bryan County Seat of Clyde, Georgia when that town was demolished to make way for the development of Camp Stewart by the U.S. Army. The iron cell was dismantled, shipped by wagon to Pembroke, and then reassembled inside the jail building. The improved jail remained in operation until the 1950s, when it was retired.
In 2003, the Old City Jail was restored as a museum by the Pembroke City Council with the guidance and assistance of a committee of dedicated citizens:
Mariam Bush, Committe Chair
Audrey Marshall Renee' Houser Evelyn Barone Al Chassereau
Renovation by: M. Smith Construction Purcell Heating and Air
This historic preservation project was funded by the Pembroke City Council with additional funding provided by a Local Assistance Grant from the
Erected 2003 by Pembroke City Council.
