The Shenandoah County Jail in downtown Woodstock looked like this until it was most recently renovated in the 1970s.This postcard photo was mailed in 1912. At that time and until it was last renovated, inmates were housed in the building at left. The sheriff’s office, jailer and dispatching were housed in lower level of the building at right, and the sheriff and his family occupied an apartment on the second floor. Sheriff P. W. Crisman Sr. and his family lived there until the mid to late 1970s. None of the county’s three sheriffs since then has lived at the jail. The old jail today temporarily holds prisoners awaiting an appearance in circuit court next door and a processing site for persons arrested and awaiting transport to the regional jail at Front Royal.
