Tours will be on the hour, beginning at 10 a.m. with the last tour at 2 p.m. You will be able to visit the jail cell of Chester Gillette, one of their most famous inmates whose murder case spurred the novel "An American Tragedy" and the Hollywood film "A Place in the Sun."

It will be held in the Gazebo of the Waterfront Grille. In the event of rain, it will be held in the Historic Terminal Building at the site. A free will donation offering will be taken for the "Friends of Historic Herkimer County," a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization who are renovating the 1834 Herkimer County Jail to save this historic building.
