Walk in the footsteps of a prisoner
The Historic SDG Jail offers guided tours of the facility, our tour guides are very knowledgeable using all the information they've obtained to deliver you the best experience. They obtained plenty of information through archives, past research, stories of inmates who were in the prison as well as guards, as well as countless of stories from tourists, old tour guides, and not to mention paranormal investigators with their experiences within the jail.

Our tour guides will take you throughout every accessible area in the jail, and even to the original courtroom of Eastern Ontario that was built on top of the jail.
