St. Cloud, MN Minnesota Correctional Facility - View

The Minnesota Correctional Facility (MCF)-St. Cloud was opened in 1889. Originally known as the Minnesota State Reformatory for Men, it was designed to rehabilitate first time "offenders" between the ages of 16 - 30, through industrial work-programming activity. The site was chosen to utilize the quarrying of granite for the construction of the facility and it was largely built with inmate labor. While the facility no longer has the extensive industrial programming it once had as a Reformatory, it has the distinction of having the only Masonry and Barber programs in the Minnesota DOC. MCF-St. Cloud also has the distinction of having the first female warden (the late Patt Adair) appointed to a male adult facility. The most unique information for the facility is its iconic granite wall. Completed in 1922, the wall is considered the second largest continuous wall made by incarcerated individuals. The first is the Great Wall of China. In 1996, the facility became the admitting facility for all adult male in the Minnesota DOC. It continues this function today. The vast majority of men are assessed and classified and transferred to other DOC facilities. It also has two chemical dependency programs and offers adult basic and general education programming..
