FAYETTE, Mo. – A unique historic Missouri house is for sale in Fayette, Missouri. The town is a half-hour northwest of Columbia.

The restored two-bedroom Victorian, known as the Howard County Sheriff’s house has nine jail cells and a booking room. The 1875 property dates back to the days when law enforcement in small towns kept a close eye on their prisoners by keeping them at their homes.
