Public Library in Nassau, Bahamas

This four-level, octagon-shaped building was a goal (jail) from 1800 until 1873. Then the dungeon and cells were converted into book shelves for the Nassau Public Library. Even if you are not interested in checking out a book, it is worth visiting to see artifacts dating back to Colonial times. Another treat is standing on the balcony for a view of the surrounding rose-colored government buildings.
