Throw Back Thursday from County Clerk Tim Tyler!
Did you know Burlington County Prison in Mount Holly operated for 154 years from 1811-1965? The Prison Museum along with the adjoining Warden’s House, is featured as one of 90 other Burlington County locations in the National Register of Historic Places.
Want to check it out? The buildings are open for tours Thursday-Saturday from 10am to 4pm and on Sunday from 12pm to 4pm. The admission fee for tours is $4 for adults, $2 for children, seniors, and students. Children under the age of 5 get in for free.
During the month of October, the prison hosts “haunted tours” leading up to Halloween!
