Goderich's Historic GAoL
The building sits back from the road carrying echoes of one of Canada’s earliest prisons. The Huron Historic Gaol is part of the Huron County Museum and offers a step back in time to the prison system active until the Gaol’s closing in 1972.
First built in 1841, the prison was regarded as a model of humanitarian prison design. It originally served as the Gaol for the Counties of Huron, Bruce and Perth, later serving only Huron County.
