Alderson Prison in lovely West Virginia was not simply the first Federal prison intended for women, but also the very first prison ever built on American shores to house women only; for as you might have read in this 1924 article, thousands of American women were running afoul of the law as a result of Prohibition.

In the fullness of time Alderson's gray walls would host Billie Holiday, Martha Stewart and the W.W. II traitor, "Axis Sally". It is quite likely that actress Lori Loughlin will soon be taking-up residence there, as well.
