Documents from the Past

In 2011, Lisa Durfee purchased a box of documents at a garage sale on Clinton Street. She discovered that the unmarked gray cardboard box was filled with intake forms, letters, photographs, and administrative paperwork from the New York State Training School for Girls in the 1920s. How they came to be in a garage sale on Clinton Street was not clear.

Recently, the Prison Public Memory Project has, with Durfee's permission, made these documents available in a digital archive. Click here to access that archive.
