Between 1873 and 1961, the jail underwent numerous renovations and extensions. In 1961, a two-story brick, concrete and steel building was constructed. It had the capacity to house 61 inmates, on the east side of the 1873 jail. In 1990, a 225-inmate facility was built, which in 2006 was extended to accommodate 374 inmates.
