Behind the Bars: Live Virtual Q & A
July 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Meet the faces of the Huron Historic Gaol and learn about life Behind the Bars between 1841 and 1911 in this virtual Q & A on Facebook live. Submit your questions beforehand or ask them live!
On Thursday, July 15, 2021 at 7 pm and 8 pm, join the Gaol live on the Huron County Museum’s Facebook page to hear from two different prisoners and find out what it was like “behind the bars” in the Huron Historic Gaol. You will meet: Mary W. (Inmate #4806) who was committed to jail in 1893 for vagrancy, meaning she had no home, and no one to look after her. Helen B. (Inmate #5180) who in 1900 was committed to jail for escaping from the London Insane Asylum. She will be sent back to London as soon as possible.
