Old New-Gate Prison & Copper Mine
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.
