Litchfield Jail Run

June 5 8:45 am 4:00 pm EDT

Market Tavern

Go directly to Jail Do not pass GO, do not collect $200. This ride takes us to the Litchfield County Jail. The oldest building in the town, it was built in 1812 and had a capacity of 120 prisoners. When Connecticut eliminated County government in 1960, the state took over the jail. It ceased operating as a prison in 1993 and was sold to private investors in 2013.

Looking to develop the site, plans emerged to combine it with some nearby buildings and as construction came to a close in late 2018, the building had been converted to four luxury residential apartments, two financial advisory firms, a bakery, several boutiques, and a popular restaurant.

The restaurant named the Market Place Tavern is our destination for this ride. Featuring options like the Jailhouse Burger, fish & chips & even Tavern Truffed Mac & Cheese, it should be a great meal to go with the 3 hour meandering route we have planned to get there.
