The Museum is proud to announce the premiere of "Kittery: Then & Now" on television.

"Portsmouth Naval Prison" Book Signing – with Katy Kramer
Saturday, July 23, from 10 am to 12 pm
  — Kittery Historical & Naval Museum

For over a century, "the Castle" or "the Rock," with its deceptively appealing exterior, has kept both visitors and local residents in its thrall. Designed or deserved, the prison's legacy remains an intriguing mix of dread and redemption. The dearth of information about the Prison, not far from her home, has kept author Katy Kramer researching for over a decade. Currently freelancing and teaching, she has written features for magazines and other publications. Photographs in the book were primarily gathered from special collections, libraries, and museums. Come to the Museum to meet the author, and purchase a signed copy of the book.
