( 6 ) Abandoned Correctional Center (3/4/2017)

Abandoned Correctional Center

We venture out to an abandoned correctional center. This was our first encounter to an abandoned correctional center and was insane (Took us almost 3 weeks to get the footage and photographs all figured out since the place was fairly large). This correctional center was used for a filming of a TV series and opened in 1858. This correctional center housed thousands of inmates and continuously peaked every year adding more and more. There was also a women’s prison that was added across the road from the main initial structures around 1896, but that closed in 1932 when a new prison nearby opened up. This prison was also quite slow to modernize. It had no running water and no working toilets in the cells in 1910. Sadly, the closure was cited in 2002 for budget cuts and obsolete and dangerous nature of the buildings. The staff and prisoners were all transferred to a different location.
