Mansfield Reformatory Preservation Society

Mansfield Reformatory has two histories: one that started in 1886, when the first cornerstone of the uncommonly magnificent men's prison was laid, and one that started in 1994. That's when The Shawshank Redemption, filmed at the Reformatory, was released, showcasing its grand combination of Victorian Gothic, Richardsonian Romanesque and Queen Anne architecture to national audiences. Today, visitors are drawn to the now-museum for both aspects of the building's life, as well as for photo tours and a spooky experience that Huffington Post featured as one of the six-most haunted places in America.
