The Ohio State Reformatory


When Denise and Dan were with us in Mount Vernon, we watched The Shawshank Redemption and then went to tour the Ohio State Reformatory, where it was filmed.

The building is beautiful, but we were surprised by how much repair is still needed.
One of the front entries
From one of the front windows in the warden's office
This hallway gave me the creeps
In the chapel
Looking down from the sixth floor of the cell blocks
A lovely wallpaper in the museum
Some of the former inmates
 Over all we really enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it.
