Yes, you can either create a new, empty repo and load it in at the top,
or make a new directory in your old one and load under that. The
differences will be that keeping thing separate will make the old
revision numbers remain consistent and make it easier if you ever want
to pull them apart again. Merging them might make maintenance of
authentication/access control easier.
