The Lindsay Olde Gaol Museum, was formerly an 1860's-era County Jail until it finally closed in 2003, when its last 86 inmates were transferred to more modern facilities. Former cells have now been given over to display space and galleries that tell the story of the Kawartha Lakes.

The yard is the former site of the gallows and is still apparently occupied by three unmarked graves.

* There is a controversy concerning orbs in regards to their authenticity. Although many are believed to be authentic, there are still many showing up as a result of airborne particles (dust) at the time of the flash. This happens in both indoor & outdoor shots. Because of this, it makes it hard to disassociate the false positive orbs from the real ones. We at proo(f) leave the interpretation of the anomalies to you.
