Fron 1872 – 1875 Women’s cells, the Great Hall and more Warden’s quarters were constructed in brick. During this time the complex was also used as a Colonial Prison. It was last used as a Police Lock-up during the Great Depression in the 1930’s. From 1989 – 1996 extensive restoration work has been carried and returned the goal to its original condition. Cells, Warden’s Quarters and the Great Hall contain displays.
Guided and Night tours are available.
