Doors Open Winnipeg: Vaughan St Jail

May 25-26, 2013

A Free Event that opens the doors to historic locations.  The Vaughan St Jail returns after a seven year layover and will be hosted by Muddy Water Tours and will offer historical vignettes revealing the life and times of criminals and activities connect with this unique building.  Come early as we anticipate a long line up. After the event, pick up a t-shirt or other souvenirs, get your photo taken with “characters” and learn about this former jail!

This is a wonderful opportunity because this historic building site is not usually open to the public and unfortunately may not always be around for us to venture into! It’s a wonderful piece of Winnipeg history. It hasn’t been opened up to the public to visit in 7 years! I am working on finding out a time on this one. Will post it here as soon as I know.
