The Ohio State Reformatory, also referred to as the Mansfield Reformatory, is a historic prison located in Mansfield, Ohio. Constructed between 1886 and 1896, it remained in operation until a 1990 federal court order required it to be closed. The facility is best known for its role in the Shawshank Redemption.

The 20th anniversary of Shawshank Redemption’s debut is planned for this weekend, from August 29 until the 31, with events and tours taking place in Mansfield, Ashland and Upper Sandusky, Ohio!
