The Ohio State Reformatory (OSR), also known as the Mansfield Reformatory, is a historic prison located in Mansfield, Ohio in the United States. It was built between 1886 and 1910 and remained in operation until a 1990 federal court ruling (the 'Boyd Consent Decree') ordered the facility to be closed. While this facility was used in a number of films (including several while the facility was still in operation), TV shows and music videos, it was made famous by the film The Shawshank Redemption (1994) when it was used in the large panning scene and for the Warden's office.

The Reformatory remained in full operation until December 1990 when it was closed via federal court order. As the result of a prisoners' class action suit citing overcrowding and inhumane conditions.


 Synopsis or Personal experiences:

    10:30 - Mike and Kim in the attic see strange lighted anomalies.  We could not explain or debunk these, but were unable to capture on camera.

    12:30 - Terri gets her chest touched in the Shower Room.


Collected Evidence:


Mike & Kim just entered into Chapel.  A male voice calls Michael.


 Spirit Box - Helen was indeed killed by a gunshot.


Helens' husband - We need to verify this, but we think the response is "Jeff"


When asked to touch Kim, the spirit tells us it's "too much".
