Rethinking Vacant Historic Adirondack Prisons Webinar Panel

February 15, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Sponsored by AARCH and John Brown Lives!, this project focuses on currently vacant Adirondack prisons that feature historic buildings, and the communities that emerged in and around those institutions. As the state considers new uses for these storied sites, we bring together multiple perspectives for a dialog on repairing economic health and social well-being involving communities of New Yorkers affected by these institutions. Our discussion will touch on appropriate interpretation and the adaptive use potential in these sites that will strengthen and restore communities.

This webinar panel is free and open to the public thanks to generous funding from a Humanities New York Action Grant.
