Yes this is the “real deal”. From 1979 to 1994 this wing was the Show Low Police Station. The jail was used as a holding cell, usually just overnight until the inmates could be transferred 50 miles north to the Holbrook Navajo County jail. Holbrook is the county seat for Navajo county. When a new police building was built just to the south of the museum in the early 1990’s there was no need for further use of the holding cell, so it sat as it is today, steeped in history with photos of past lawman, Darrin Reed memorial, FBI agent Denny Thompson’s lab equipment, and a three bed cell that holds the mysteries of the museum.
