Cell Block Tales: Tour the Jail and Meet the Prisoners

The Haddam Historical Society will host a tour of the historic Haddam Jail cellblock on October 7 and 8, 2023 from 1 pm to 4 pm.  Visitors will meet some of the famous and not so well-known historic prisoners who were incarcerated in the Haddam Jail in the 19th and 20th century.

Local actors and volunteers will portray real prisoners who were jailed for various crimes including arson, bigamy, and murder. We are partnering with the local theater group, Blue Fire Stage Company. Learn more about Blue Fire Stage Company on their Facebook page.
