In its nearly 200-year existence, the Brentsville Jail has seen a lot of different uses. From a jail in the 19th century, to a dormitory, private house and office space in the 20th century, the building has changed a lot over the years.
After years of restoration and research, the Brentsville Jail Museum is now open! Visit Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre to see the museum, which tells the story of the town of Brentsville and its inhabitants and highlights the building’s various uses.
Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre and Prince William County’s historic sites are open Fridays through Mondays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with tours offered at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
