Lass - To the lock up!


Using the NSW Heritage Festival theme 'Having a Voice', Maitland Gaol will be unlocking some secrets that relate specifically to female prisoners. Although housed in Maitland Gaol for almost 100 years very little is known about their conditions, their crimes and the severity of their sentences. The exhibition will focus on the female presence in Maitland Gaol over a four month period. It will touch on some of the well known women and some of the forgotten faces.
