Description: 

The Waterloo County Gaol (pronounced “jail”) is the oldest building in Waterloo Region. Built in 1852, the building housed prisoners continuously for over 125 years. Visitors are free to explore this historic example of life in the mid 1800s. Adjacent to the goal lies the Governor’s House which was built in 1878. This is an excellent example of a high-Victorian brick house and reflected the Governor’s respected position in the County Town of Berlin which is now known as Kitchener.
