This Reformatory was the location of The Shawshank Redemption movie, filmed here in 1993.
Special Note: The Reformatory created a "special 25th Anniversary story for the back" of 100 pieces for their Shawshank Anniversary weekend Aug 16-18, 2019. If you want the piece with the special back, you will need to contact them directly at the Ohio State Reformatory, ATTN: Jazmyn Ross, email@example.com.
Recording artists have also used this prison in their music videos.
Known locally as the Mansfield Reformatory, it now hosts guests from all over the world for tours, ghost hunts, and special events.
We handcraft this replica, in our Wooster, Ohio workshop, from 3/4" thick wood with colorful details on the front and history on the back.
Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, lounging on the porch railing just waiting for that next ghost to show up!
