The old hanging ground was behind the Middlesex County Administration Building. Many infamous convicts – including cop-killer Peg Leg Brown, ax murderess Phoebe Campbell and the first (and second!) man hanged in London, Cornelius Burleigh – gasped out their last breaths and were buried under what is now a parking lot. Onsite actors will be on hand for dramatic interpretations.
