An architecture of authority :the jail/sheriff's residences of northwest Ohio, 1867-1902
This study investigates the historic development, classification, and reuse
potential of the jail/ sheriff's residence building-type. Using collected data, the
study examines fifteen buildings in northwest Ohio and develops a
classification system for the building type. The historic precedents for the
building type were investigated and traced to their English roots, namely I the
county gaol that emerged from the Bridewell in the eighteenth century.
The Jail/Sheriff's Residence is a heretofore unclassified building-type
consisting of two primary parts, a residence for the County Sheriff and the
county jail. The buildings are primarily located in Ohio and nearby States.
