Could anybody tell me if the schuylkill haven federal prison is open and in use? I was seaching google for FEMA camps and this name popped up. I have googled it and very strange responses come up. I just wanted someone who lives in that area to tell me any info you can. I live about an hour away and wanted to know what is going on in my extended back yard. Thanks, Tara

I live right outside of Schuylkill Haven. To the best of my knowledge, there is NO prison here. The closest prison is in Pottsville, behind the courthouse. If you want to consider that a prison.(no hardened criminals) The closest "real prison", is in Frackville, about 20 minutes north of here.

FEMA camps for Haven would be the national guard grounds. FEMA camps for Frackville is on the grounds of the Frackville prison. Pottsville is a county prison which is always over crowded with small drug dealing people. Minersville Federal Prison ( exit 116 off 81) which is also in Schuylkill County is another prison that has FEMA camps set up. http://chasvoice.blogspot.com/2012/05/fema-ca... has a map of the FEMA camps also except it don't includ Frackville Pa because its a new camp in the making. Your right about the map showing Haven and not Minersville. The government thinks people are dumb. Most of these camps if you look are on grounds of the military but they do not have Camphill on that list either but Alex Jones at infowars.com has links to all the FEMA camps.

>>>>> What is that massive building along the Schuylkill river between Schuylkill Have and Cressona? Its near railroad tracks. Might that be the FEMA camp?

Minersville / Gordon Prison -
Yes, there is a Federal Prison there, and it is active. I have been in there. It can house over 2000. Currently, it seems to be a minimum security complex, as I have seen inmates walking (as office workers might do at lunch time)on a pretty-much low-security circuit outside of the more restricted pods area - but still within the outer fence perimeter. They might have been the lowest-restricted inmates, but that is just a guess. But it is definitely a prison.
I know this because I was a truck driver for Fanelli Bros Trucking which is nearby to the prison. The prison had a furniture manufacturing section, where inmates worked. They made office equipment, much of which would be delivered (I have done so) to Gov Buildings, such as a Social Security Branch would use. I used 'past tense' because this might have recently been ended.
My opinion is that this facility could easily be used as a FEMA resource. I have seen black-colored Blackhawk Helios fly in and out. The prison itself, is not visible as it is tucked in - on a mountain flat. But it can be easily viewed by Goo/gle satellite.
I hope this clears up the questions.

Right you are! I have delivered scrap bale alum there. I can see where suspicions can grow, given the structure. It is just an old-world brick-heavy 'dinosaur' of a factory

For ariel view (goo/le sat) look directly south of Gordon Pa. Prison is tucked off-road at I81 & hwy 901

Not to be confused with prison 6mi east at I81 & hwy 61 at Frackville & prison 1mi east of Frackville

There is NO FEDERAL PRISON in Schyulkill Haven. I found the same things myself. A few years ago, a friend asked me about it because her son had seen a Federal Prison Camp on google maps, back by SAPA, which is actually in Cressona.(I work at SAPA now, f&*% me) There is no such place. Now, for the past year I have been wondering and asking questions about why there are so many train cars piling up around here. All over Sch County and, I'm told Berks and Lehigh. Literally thousands. I can't get a straight answer anywhere. So, yesterday I looked at a FEMA train video on you tube which featured a facility that reminded me an awful lot of SAPA. Plus, one more tid bit. A few weeks ago there was a strange vehicle in our parking lot taking pics of a pretty unused area. By the time I got out there he was taking off and I never got to ask any questions.
