Old New Gate Prison Is Re Opening

posted by Courtney and KISS in the Morning - 

After nine years of being closed Old New Gate Prison will be re opening this Saturday.  The mine operated for 40 years and then was converted into a state prison.  Budget cuts and badly needed work forced New-Gate to close, but the state recently bonded $1.5 million to restore this historic site.  

This Saturday, Newgate re-opens and they are expecting a big crowd, as many as 2,000 people.  It will be a celebration of one of Connecticut’s most interesting treasures.  The cost is $6 for adults, while children under 12 are free.

Ct. Open house day.... Old Newgate Prison. #history #ctopenhouseday #oldnewgateprison #connecticut
