The Prescott City Jail is a historic city jail behind the city hall of Prescott, Arkansas. The modest single-story structure was built for the city in 1912 by the Southern Structural Steel Company. It is built of reinforced concrete, with metal grates covering unglazed window openings, and a doorway that is reinforced with heavy metal shutters. It was built to replace an early jail, from which a suspect involved in the burglary of a prominent citizen's home had escaped, in part due to its poor condition. This building, housing three cells, served the city until the 1960s.
