Just a quick stop on the side of the road! Not sure I would go out of my way... kind of a gimmick ( I think) to get into the Guinness world records! So stop if your there... but don’t go out of your way!

Stayed in Carrabelle for only one night. Stopped by this lovely attraction, took pictures and read the history. Hope it is still OK after Hurricane Michael!

Carrabelle is tiny but has a character charm only found in coastal NWFL. So much history from WWII training in this area. Dog Island, Crooked River, too many to list.

Have stopped by this place numerous times in the past 25 years and it always makes me smile. Don't drive too fast or you will miss it.

We drive past Carrabelle's Police Station all the time. It's small and cute - obviously an old-school phone booth. There really is a Police Department there - less than 10 Officers. If you get a chance, check out their website for its history.

Well worth the visit and trip. Added to the enjoyment of the day trip, along with the WWII museum just down the road. I highly recommend a visit to this town. We'll be back next year to spend more time here.

The smallest police station in the world is a neat attraction. It's easy to miss if you are not looking for it, but it is definitely worth a stop to get a close look at an eccentric piece of history. The story behind the "phone...More

The story is more interesting then seeing it. It is simply a phone booth they used to recieve calls before they had a real station.
