Text of sign:


Old Schafer Jail


The Schafer Jail is of native granite stone and concrete construction.  It was completed in 1910, and served McKenzie County

for 31 years.  It was from this jail that Charles Bannon, the confessed murderer of the six members of the Albert E. Haven family

was taken by an angry mob and lynched off a bridge 1/2 mile east of the jail on January 29, 1931.
