Dan River Prison Work Farm

Dan River Prison Work Farm is located on a 187.5-acre site in the west-central area of Caswell County, near Yanceyville. The prison was officially dedicated on March 25, 1996. The modern architecture of this facility differs markedly from traditional prisons and was designed to be built and maintained at less cost. The facility has an administration building, central complex building comprised of food service, staff offices, visiting area, clothes house and central control office, and segregation building. The dormitory building is 60,000 square feet that contains 10 inmate housing areas, 10 day rooms, two canteens, 10 shower and lavatory areas, medical and program departments, barber shop, library, classroom, chaplain's office and two control rooms. Dan River houses felon and misdemeanant minimum custody adult male offenders. Inmate work assignments include food service, maintenance, janitorial and other institutional jobs. Other assignments include working at Correction Enterprises Laundry, maintenance work at Caswell Correctional Center and the inmate construction program. A joint venture with the N.C. Wildlife Commission and Dan River has offenders working restoring forest land, parks and lakes all across North Carolina. In cooperation with Piedmont Community College, the facility operates the Roxboro Satellite Training Center, which uses the building that once housed Person Correctional Center. The Training Center's programs include carpentry, masonry, information systems technology, horticulture, basic electricity, and human resource development for 130 inmates..
