The Canadian County Jail, designed by Solomon A. Layton and built in 1906, has deteriorated to the point that there are holes in the roof. Although in extremely poor condition, the building remains a striking example of the Italian Renaissance style as applied to a jail. As the oldest extant county buildings in Canadian County, the jail and stable would benefit from increased public awareness. The jail was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
