(Sunbury) -- The property of the former historic Northumberland County Prison has a new name.

A developer has told the Sunbury City Council he's renamed it Stone Castle.

Mark Walberg is not sure what his plans are for the burned out former prison he successfully bid for to the tune of $40,000.

He owns several properties in the city.

In January 2015, fire ripped through the nearly 140-year-old prison, destroying the structure.

The blaze prompted the evacuation of more than 200 inmates.
