Alumni Reunion (Final Year)

June 1, 2019, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Alumni Reunion (Final Year)

Standard Admission.

Some of Eastern State's alumni – former officers and prisoners – return to the cellblocks one last time to share their memories with the public during a Q&A session.

It has been nearly fifty years since Eastern State closed its doors and ceased operations as an active prison. Decades have passed since this chapter in the penitentiary’s story came to an end. For the last twenty years, at our annual Alumni Reunion, we have had the opportunity to learn from some of the people who lived and worked here until 1971.

Now, the continued passing of time means the end of another chapter. This year, we host our final Alumni Reunion. While the event is coming to an end, the legacy of our alumni lives on at Eastern State. Their stories are present throughout the penitentiary and heard every day by visitors from around the world.

Please join us as we host our final formal Q&A with Eastern State alumni. The Alumni Reunion is included with admission. Tickets are available online or at the door, subject to availability.
