HILLSVILLE — A Florida couple now owns the old Carroll County Jail, after Hillsville Town Council accepted an offer to sell the building on Monday night.

Little interest had been shown until December 2007,when Town Manager Larry

South informed council members that an offer had been received.

Council voted unanimously on Monday night to accept an offer of $50,000 from Bob and Ann DeGrosa of Merritt Island, Fla.

Hillsville had acquired the jail from the county as a part of the first phase of its downtown revitalization.
