|OLD IZARD COUNTY JAIL
Sometime ago, Steve Wheeler of Melbourne expressed interest in converting the old Izard County Jail into a museum of sort. In exploring this idea, Jim Harris of Melbourne said that the old jail located on the way to the Melbourne Cemetery was built by a man named Hayden Landers but that he didn’t know when it built, how it was financed, or any other information. Anyone having such knowledge is asked to contact Sheriff Tate Lawrence at the Izard County Sheriff’s Department or to call 870 368 4203.
