Long Description:
Husbands' Alley

With Jerome's rough and tumble early days came the red-light district and prostitutes. Much of the red-light district was located on Hull Avenue, the road below Main Street. In 1913, reformers helped pass an ordinance restricting houses of ill fame from being located downtown. Citizens showed their disdain for the law by naming the alleyway from Main Street to Hull Avenue "Husbands' Alley". Red-light district buildings on Hull Avenue included The Cribs, a brick structure that no longer exists. The ladies jail is still currently located on Hull Avenue in the bottom floor of the New State Motor building.
