Tennessee Prison for Women
3881 Stewarts Lane |
|Managed by||Tennessee Department of Corrections|
TPFW, the state's primary women's correctional facility, houses women of all custody levels. The prison serves as the state's new female prisoner intake and classification center, and it also houses all female death row inmates. There is currently only one female on death row in the state of Tennessee, Christa Pike. Women on death row are not housed in special death row units because few women go on death row. The prison first opened in 1966 and has a capacity of 760 inmates. The state classifies the prison as a maximum security institution.
