Facility:Old New Gate Prison & Copper Mine
Description:National Historic Landmark operated by the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism. Mining operations began at the Old New-Gate location in 1705. However, mining was not profitable, & in 1773 the Colony of Connecticut began to use the abandoned tunnels as a prison. It was used to house prisoners during the American Revolution, & in 1790 became the state prison. The prison closed in 1827.
