World's Smallest Police Station
Carrabelle on Florida’s Gulf Coast just across the bay from Apalachicola has the World’s smallest police station and it says so on the window. It’s the size of a phone booth, that’s because it was converted from one in 1963. The town only had two police cars and when one was on patrol the other sat by the phone booth. Arrested criminals were taken over the bridge to the Apalachicola jail. A few years ago, Carrabelle built a larger police station but has kept the original one sitting at the corner of Highway 30 and Meridian Street. Locals say it’s the most photographed place in town.
