Roadside Buzz ~ World’s Smallest Police Station ~ Ridgeway, SC
It’s the World’s Smallest Police Station…or at least it used to be. We stopped in at the town of Ridgeway, South Carolina just off of US 21 to visit a police station that is little bigger than a bathroom stall.
The station first opened its doors in 1940 and was last used for law enforcement purposes in 1990. Today it serves as a visitor kiosk, but still proudly displays a sign recognizing its significance as a micro office for police. Just beside the old station is the new police station which opened its doors in 1990. While the new station is larger (about 2x as large as its predecessor), it too is a testament to tiny work spaces.
