Bayport, MN Minnesota Correctional Facility - Stillwater View

Built in 1914, the MCF-Stillwater is the state's largest close-security institution for adult males. The facility has seven living units inside and also has a minimum-security unit outside the main perimeter. The history of corrections in Stillwater dates back to 1853 when the Territorial Prison (Minnesota was not yet a state) was built on the north side of the City of Stillwater. That facility operated until 1914 when it was closed and operations were moved to the new site south of Stillwater in what is today the Town of Bayport. The role of MCF-Stillwater in the DOC is to provide men with educational, vocational and industrial programing opportunities during incarceration. Educational programs include adult basic education, literacy, and general educational development (GED). Certificate programs include computer careers and higher education including degree programs. Vocational programs include carpentry, welding, machining, boiler operation, and electrician. Through MINNCOR Industries, men have the opportunity to work in subcontract assembly and packaging, canteen fulfillment, and warehousing/delivery services. Stillwater also provides transitional life skills, behavioral change, and restorative justice programming. The goal of all programming is to provide the opportunity for change in their lives and the skills needed for a successful transition back into society. MCF-Stillwater is also home to The Prison Mirror, the nation's oldest, continuously-operated inmate newspaper. Founded in 1887, The Prison Mirror has won many national awards for outstanding penal journalism..
