Ailey Jail

Scenic Montgomery County is home to Ailey, Georgia – which some say is reminiscent of a New England town. From T.A. Blocker’s, continue on Highway 15/29 toward Tarrytown and Soperton. Turn left at the next road – County Highway 227. Follow Co. Hwy 227 along its 7 mile stretch of blue skies, green timber forests and dainty wildflowers to Ailey. Each road that intersects with downtown Ailey meets Highway 280 West, so you can easily explore Ailey.

Be sure to look for the original Ailey Jail when you turn left at the downtown intersection. This one-room jail cell once helped keep the peace, and now it maintains its place on the National Register of Historic Places.
