Long Description:
These foundation remains are located on the small hill, north of the Trussville Civitan Park, situated in Trussville, Alabama. As of today, the part of hill is covered by forest. But it wasn't always like this. In early 1900's, the Jefferson County Prison Work Camp was located in this area.
