Construction of the Ohio State Reformatory (often referred to as Mansfield Reformatory) begin in 1886 and finally opened its doors in 1896. Even to this day, the reformatory is rich in history, architecture and paranormal intrigue. Join Spirited Events by Jofa for a private paranormal exploration within the infamous prison walls.
The reformatory originally opened its doors to 150 young men. Like many reformatories of the time, the inmates were encouraged to repent for their regressions and reform to a more spiritual life path. When construction was finally complete in 1919, OSR had the largest self-supporting steel cell block in the world, with 600 individual cells that were stacked six stories high. Over the years, the reformatory housed over 155,000 inmates until it closed its doors in December 1990.
Several famous movies have used OSR as a filming venue including The Shawshank Redemption, Air Force One and many others.
