Built before Arizona was officially a state, the Globe jail served the territory starting in 1910 through February 14, 1912, when Arizona received its Statehood. Even in those days, vigilantism of the Wild West was finally fading in favor of due process and this was especially evident when the jail was built right next to the county courthouse. In fact, an open catwalk leading between the courthouse and jail showcased the move towards a more proficient judicial system. Prisoners would be incarcerated at the Old Gila Jail for crimes ranging from theft to murder 'til 1981, when the facility saw its last prisoner.
