Sheriff's Prison Farm

The Guilford County Prison Farm was first opened in 1935. The prison farm has a capacity of 134 inmates and sonsists of 806 acres of land located in Eastern Guilford County off NC Highway 61 North approximately two miles north of Gibsonville, NC. The original dormitory was bult by the inmates. The rocks that make up the structure of the original building were taken from the fields by inmates and inmate labor was used to build the building. The average time served by inmates at that time was thirty days to six months.

The Prison Farm was placed under Sheriff Barnes' direction on March 3, 1997. Sheriff BJ Barnes wanted to provide much needed programs for the sentenced inmates in Guilford County. Work programs and classes were chosen that would teach skills to the inmates that would provide much needed services to the county. The Guilford County Prison Farm remains the only county operated Prison Farm in the state of North Carolina today.
