Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women opened on July 7, 2008. Women previously housed at Black Mountain Correctional Center for Women were transferred to Swannanoa on that date.

SCCW has completed renovations on four dormitories, Greenwood, Frye, Sloop and Gilliat.  Renovations on the vocation building have provided inmates with an educational classroom and an operating greenhouse.

The Inmate Construction Program is currently renovating the Buchanan building in order to continue to accommodate the increasing inmate population and offer more educational classrooms and a medical wing.

VISITATION

Visitation is on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. according to inmates last names, A-K and L-Z.  One group is in the morning, the other in the afternoon.  After six months, the groups rotate mornings and afternoons.
