The first day of filming for SELMA was at the old jail in Acworth. Interestingly enough, One of the pictures shows Center Street Tavern, the sponsor this year, and rumor has it, they’ve got some shenanigans planned for this year’s candlelight tour at the Jail… Jail+Shennanigans= 👀
The original Acworth Jail was built in 1935 for $3,000 ($60,346 in current dollars*) with assistance from the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. The new “escape-proof” jail contained six cells and housed the city council room. 
The building was in use as a jail facility until 1995 and still contains the original cells, and is listed as an historical landmark. 
The renovated building later housed the city offices of Downtown Development, Historic Preservation, and Tourism.
