Mother Jones' Prison, also known as Mrs. Carney's Boarding House, is a former National Historic Landmark located at Pratt, Kanawha County, West Virginia. It was a large two story structure constructed by the Willis Brothers and used mostly as a boarding house. It was the "prison" in which labor organizer / agitator Mary Harris "Mother Jones" was detained during the 1912-1913 mine wars.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. It was delisted in 1997, after demolition in 1996.
