Where: Wright Museum - Wolfeboro

Event description:

The Portsmouth Naval Prison, now vacant, sits at the far end of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on Seavey Island on the Maine and New Hampshire border. For over a century, “the Castle” or “the Rock,” with its deceptively appealing exterior, has kept both visitors and New Hampshire residents in its thrall. Since its opening in 1908 to its decommissioning in 1974 and into the present day, myth and lore have surrounded this iconic building. Routine inside often reflected the latest advancements in the criminal justice field. Yet, designed or deserved, the prison's legacy remains an intriguing mix of dread and redemption.

 

The dearth of information about the prison not far from her home kept author Katy Kramer researching the facility for over a decade. Currently freelancing and teaching college composition, she has written features for magazines, university publications, and local newspapers.
