After a six-year restoration project, the Brentsville Historic Jail is having a grand reopening on May 13.
According to a release, the grand opening will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on site at the Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre at 12229 Bristow Road in Bristow.
The jail was built in 1822 and was in operation for more than 71 years.
“In the 1990’s local residents convinced the County to take a more active role in the preservation and restoration of the Jail. The building has become the focus of many local ghost stories and legends. The internationally famous ‘Ghost Hunters’ TV Show featured the building on a show in 2009,” stated the Prince William County Historic Preservation Division’s website.
A ribbon cutting will be happening at 10 a.m., followed by a series of book talks and talks from area historians, stated a release.
