Walk around this 134 year old foreboding former gaol (jail) with a turnkey from yesteryear and he'll surely shock and surprise you into improved attendance at work or school. O.k, maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but the improvement will definitely be noticed during the tour as you listen to tales of famous Canadians from both sides of the bars, inmate treatment, 19th century law, hold a ball and chain, wear an inmates uniform, and see photo images of criminals.
