This prison was built in the 19th century partially to hold slaves who were recovered from shipwrecks in the Caicos Islands, such as the wreck of the Trouvadore in 1841. After all slaves were granted freedom in 1834, the prison housed criminals and even modern-day drug runners until it closed in the 1990s. The last hanging here was in the 1940s. Now you can see the cells, solitary-confinement area, and exercise yard. The prison is open only when there is a cruise ship at the port.
