Ohio State Reformatory
Haunted Prison in Mansfield, Ohio
100 Reformatory Rd. • Mansfield OH 44905 • 419-522-2644
The Ohio State Reformatory was featured in season two of Scenic Stops, an original program on WBGU-TV in Bowling Green, Ohio. The reformatory, located in Mansfield, Ohio, first opened in 1896, and closed in 1990, after housing 150,000 criminals in its history. The reformatory is believed to still house some of these prisoners in their afterlife, giving the Ohio State Reformatory the reputation of one of the most haunted places in the country. WBGU-TV would like to thank Scott Sukel and the staff of the Mansfield Reformatory for letting us explore your scenic stop!
