Ohio State Reformatory
Opened in 1886, the Ohio State Reformatory is an impressive 250,000 square foot Chateauesque building designed from Richardsonian Romanesque, Victorian Gothic, and Queen Anne architectural styles. The reformatory is located north of Mansfield in central Ohio. The reformatory first opened to 150 inmates in 1896 and closed its doors in 1990, after serving more than 155,000 men during its operation.
Seven-time Academy Award nominated film, the Shawshank Redemption, was filmed at the reformatory in 1994, as well as scenes from Air Force One in 1997. Join in the Hollywood Tour to see the "escape tunnel" from The Shawshank Redemption or tour the West Tower and the East Cell Block, during a Sunday tour.
