While wandering this historic buildings corridors and rooms, you’ll hear about (and maybe encounter) convicts like the beautiful Miss Lavinia Fisher—quite possibly America's first woman serial killer—who committed crimes so terrible, she was kept in this all-male jail; men who were imprisoned here during the tragic times of slavery in the United States; even high-sea pirates.|
