Old New-Gate Prison & Copper Mine
Master Plan

This museum site is a National Historic Landmark that includes America’s first copper mine (1707) and Connecticut’s first prison (1773-1827).  Also on site is the historic early 19th century Viets Tavern and a large barn structure from the same period.  Our firm was retained as a consultant by the Department of Public Works of the State of Connecticut to perform a comprehensive survey, analysis and master planning study of this site.
