Warwick State Training School

Durland State Training School for Boys

Warwick State Training School, a former alcohol and drug treatment center, youth rehabilitation complex, and prison will now be host to a brewery and medical marijuana farm in upstate New York.

The Warwick State Training School for Boys opened in 1914 as the New York City Farm, a rehabilitation center for alcohol and drug-dependent men, in upstate New York. It then became the State Training School for Boys in 1933, focused on the rehabilitation of young men, and then as the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility in 1977 before closing entirely in 2011.

How ironic that an institution, originally conceived as a forced alcohol and drug treatment center, a youth rehabilitation complex, and a prison, will now be renovated to host a brewery and medical marijuana farm?
