The Band Room, known as “The Gallows,” is located in what was previously an outdoor
area of the prison. It is now covered to make it available year round & due to noise
complaints (you could hear the bands in South Williamsport on a clear night). While an
active prison, there were 7 hangings in the gallows, the last of which was in 1914…
Nearly 100 years later, it is now the location of the stage in the Band Room,
open Friday and Saturday nights with live music for your entertainment.
