Davenport in Santa Cruz County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
It once held two boys from San Mateo while they thought about their horse-stealing lark and occasionally provided accommodations for the local inebriate.
After the new Front Street Jail opened in Santa Cruz in 1936, the tiny Davenport facility fell into disuse. Today, the building houses exhibits about the history of Davenport and the North coast region.
Erected 2014 by El Viceroy Marques de Branciforte E Clampus Vitus Chapter 1797.
