The Old Prison at Salisbury

Record #:
Cotton factory turned Confederate prison; in 1935 all that remained of the 40 acre Civil War encampment was a single cottage in the town of Salisbury, Rowan County. Around 1845, Maxwell Chambers built a large brick building to process cotton and six smaller structures to house mill workers. With outbreak of war, the factory was transformed for mustering grounds and a prison to hold Federal prisoners.
