Mansfield Reformatory

Mansfield Reformatory In-Person

Registration Begins: August 13, 2024.

30th anniversary of the movie Shawshank Redemption

Since its opening in 1896, the reformatory expanded its training programs and became a self-sustaining institution - the largest of its kind in the United States. Over the years, the institution’s focus of rehabilitation and education morphed a maximum-security prison filled with the most dangerous criminals in the U.S., with a death row but no death chamber. It closed on December 31, 1990, but preservation and restoration efforts are ongoing, and it continues to be as infamous today as in its heyday, appearing in numerous television shows and feature films, including The Shawshank Redemption.
