Long Description:
At the north end of town, on North Boundary Street stands a one-story concrete building which served as the jail. Painted on the front of the building is "COTTONWOOD GROVE VERDEN JAIL 1905 - 2005."

This building has two jail cells. As you enter the front barred door, to the right is a small room with a heating unit. To the left, a rudimentary lavatory has a sink on the wall and a toilet. At the back of the building, are two cells. One cell still contains a flat metal bed; the other cell is empty.

The building has two small barred windows on each side. The facade has a stepped parapet above the flat concrete roof.
