History of the Warden's House

  • Originally the warden’s living quarters were within the prison walls, but by the late 1800s the prison population had grown to a point where it was necessary to provide separate housing for the warden and his family.
  • The warden’s house was completed in 1888.
  • The warden had immediate access to the prison via a walkway (or bridge) between the two buildings on the second floor. The walkway can be seen during a Prison Museum tour.
  • Restoration of the Warden’s House was completed in 2011 and is now the permanent home of the Hugh Campbell Collection.

Hugh Campbell

(1905 - 1997)

  • Self-taught impressionistic landscape artist

  • Author of the book entitled, “Knock Vigorously To Be Heard”
  • Lived most of his life in a shack on Kate’s Tract in Mount Holly
  • There are many long-time Mount Holly residents who remember Hugh Campbell walking through the streets of town with his art supplies in-tow, so he would always be ready when he felt inspired to paint.
