The historic Don Jail--located on the new Bridgepoint Active Healthcare Campus--has been restored from a place of incarceration to one of innovation. The historic, 84,000-square-foot structure is now renamed the Bridgepoint Administration Building and provides office space for hospital administrators, educators and clinical leaders. This centre for education and learning creates a bridge between past and present.
The site is open to the public Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. There are a number of plaques throughout the site that details the History of the Don Jail as you take a free, self-guided tour.
Preserving the history of the site is important to us, that's why we recommend that any artifacts or historical memorabilia be directed to the Toronto Historical Association for proper curation.
Our video on the History of the Bridgepoint Campus captures many of the architechural highlights of the building.
