The Imperial State Prison Farm, one of the first penal institutions owned by the State of Texas, opened in 1909 in the Imperial Sugar plantation. In 1930 the facility was renamed the Central State Prison Farm since it was the central farming and distribution point of agricultural goods from correctional facilities. Construction of the first modern brick structures in the Texas prison system began shortly after and a dormitory called Camp Two opened for operation in 1939. It was nicknamed “Two Camp” by residents and staff and eventually was converted into a warehouse. By 2008 the city and the state were conducting a joint study researching whether the TDCJ should close the Central Unit and sell the land and Sugar Land entered into a 50-year lease agreement with Houston Museum of Natural Science to restore Two Camp and turn it into a satellite museum. HMNS At Sugar Land opened on October 3, 2009 and it is a great place to visit.
