Ash Street Jail introduction
the Ash Street Jail
This photo project began in February of 2000 and concluded in February of 2002.   Approximately 10 to 12 visits were made with Bernie Sullivan, Public Relations spokesman for the Bristol County Sheriff's Department, all with the consent of Sheriff Tom Hodgson.  The jail, located in a thickly settled residential area on Union Street in New Bedford, opened in 1829 and is the oldest jail in America. At one time, the infamous Lizzie Borden, of Fall River, was imprisoned there during her trial. She was eventually acquitted of the axe murders of both parents.
