This museum site, owned and administered by the Connecticut Historical Commission, is a National Historic Landmark. It includes America's first copper mine (1707) and Connecticut's first prison (1773‐1827). Also on site is the historic early 19th century Viets Tavern and a large barn structure from the same period. Our firm was retained as a consultant by the Department of Public Works of the State of Connecticut to perform a comprehensive survey, analysis and master planning study of this site.
