The prison was remodeled in 1928 and expanded to house 250 inmates.
New Hanover was one of 51 county prisons for which the state assumed responsibility with the passage of the Conner bill in 1931. It was one of 61 field unit prisons renovated or built during the late 1930s to house inmates who worked building roads.
Two modular dormitories added in 1978 have since been closed. In the 1987 Emergency Prison Facilities Development program, lawmakers provided for a 50 bed dormitory for New Hanover. Another 250 beds were included in the $55 million prison construction program authorized in 1989. Inmates moved into the first 50 bed dorm in 1988 and the other dorms in 1992.
Prison engineers supervised inmates in remodeling the prison's original building to provide classrooms and office space which was opened by the fall of l994. An 18 bed dormitory at the prison provides administrative and disciplinary segregation space for minimum custody inmates needing to be segregated.
New Hanover currently serves as a minimum security prison for adult males.
Inmates may be assigned to a variety of jobs. Correction Enterprises employees supervise 78 inmates who work in the New Hanover Memorial Hospital laundry. Other inmates work on Department of Transportation road crews. Inmates may also be assigned to housekeeping, kitchen duties, maintenance and labor contracts.
More than 50 inmates participate in work release, leaving the prison for part of the day to work for a business in the community.
The prison has five community work crews and two litter crews which do all kinds of work in a four county area. There are also five Department of Transportation road crews which work in three counties.
Cape Fear Community College works with the prison to provide adult education classes and help inmates prepare for the GED tests. There is also course work in Industrial Electricity and Horticulture.
