The Detroit House of Correction, commonly referred to as DeHoCo, is a former penitentiary complex near Detroit, Michigan. Originally located in the city of Detroit, the Detroit House of Correction was relocated Plymouth and Northville townships between 1920 and 1931 as the old “medieval” structure was considered not only antiquated but a fire hazard.
