Remains of the Port Arthur church used by convicts 1840 - 1877
The Port Arthur penal settlement began life as a small timber station in 1830, but it quickly grew in importance as a penal establishment for prisoners sent from Britain. The 1840s witnessed a consolidation of the industrial and penal nature of the settlement as the convict population reached over 1100. In 1842 a huge flour mill and granary (later the penitentiary) was begun, as well as the construction of a hospital. 1848 saw the first stone laid for the Separate Prison, the completion of which brought about a shift in punishment philosophy from physical to mental subjugation
