Oral History Project

Do you have a memory or interesting story of the Gaol?

As part of the 20 Years On program and to assist in ongoing research, we are asking the community to share their stories of the gaol with us. You may have lived in the neighbourhood, taken part in the escape drills if you went to school nearby or have a great story from passing by the gaol when it was operational.

The most successful preservation of history has been through storytelling and your story could help unlock the past for future generations who visit Maitland Gaol.

If you’re interested in telling your story and would like to discuss having it formally recorded, please press the button below and complete the form, phone 02 4936 6842 or email info@maitlandgaol.com.au
