Behind the Bars: Live Virtual Q & A

July 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free
Virtual Behind the Bars event

Meet the faces of the Huron Historic Gaol and learn about life Behind the Bars between 1841 and 1911 in this virtual Q & A session taking place on Facebook live.

Join us on Thursday, July 15, at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the Huron County Museum’s Facebook page to meet these two prisoners who were inmates at the Gaol:

  • 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.

There will be time to ask them questions about their time in the Gaol, so submit your questions beforehand by email or ask them live!
