Accomac Debtor’s Prison
The Accomac Debtor's Prison was constructed around 1782. It is a rare survivor of penal architecture of the colonial period. The small brick structure was originally built as a jailer's residence. In 1824 iron bars, oak batten doors, and locks were added when it was converted into a "gaol" for debtors, a purpose it served until 1849.
