Educational Value

Construction began on the Ohio State Reformatory in 1886 when the Ohio Board of State Charities decided that an intermediate penitentiary was required to rehabilitate inmates that was more secure than the Boys Industrial School, but for lower tier offenders than the Ohio Penitentiary. The Ohio State Reformatory now houses the Ohio Corrections Museum, the Shawshank Museum, and the North Central Ohio Industrial Museum. Students can view the inner workings of a historical Reformatory, the history of corrections in the state of Ohio, the history of Hollywood activities that took place here, and the industry of manufacturing and industry in Ohio.
