The Sing Sing Oral History Project

The Sing Sing Oral History Project
The Sing Sing Oral History Project

The Sing Sing Prison Oral History Project is an initiative that aims to document and preserve the rich history of Sing Sing Prison through the stories of those who have been behind the walls of the Big House. The history of Sing Sing is not complete without the inclusion of these voices. The oral histories will become part of the new Sing Sing Historic Prison Museum.

The project will begin by filming corrections officers at their annual Old Timers reunion being held at the end of June. Any money raised above the goal will be used to fund the continued filming and editing of oral histories of Sing Sing corrections officers.

A new season, a new way to visit Stone Barns Center!

A new season, a new way to visit Stone Barns Center!

Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills is changing the way people can visit the farm and introducing new activities, tours and demonstrations designed to engage each and every visitor in a whole-farm experience! The farm is a special place. On beautiful weekend days we’ve seen a volume of visitors we cannot accommodate. Such numbers have a negative impact on our farming operation and limit the educational opportunities for visitors. By moving to ticketed weekend admission we are better able to deliver a quality experience to all visitors and conserve this land.

The creation of a Sing Sing Historic Prison Museum on the banks of the Hudson in Ossining has long been talked about.  The concept is being revived among those who care about Sing Sing’s unique position in the history of the American penal system.  Others are interested in development of the museum because of its tremendous national and international potential as a significant tourist attraction for New York’s Hudson Valley. Find out how you can support this important project by donating
