Unlocking McNeil’s Past: The Prison, The Place, The People
January 26-May 26, 10am-5pm
Washington State History Museum
1911 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma
1.888.238.4373 | washingtonhistory.org
This exhibition presents the larger history of McNeil Island as a place, and the prison that opened there 143 years ago. The prison operated far longer than the better-known Alcatraz island prison. When the state’s correctional center on McNeil Island closed in 2011, it was the last prison in the nation only accessible by air or water. From its beginnings as a territorial prison through its tenure as a federal and state penitentiary, the story of McNeil illuminates how incarceration in the U.S. has changed over time, as seen through the evolution of the prison facility, itself.
