The Ohio State Reformatory, also known as the Mansfield Reformatory, is a historic prison located in Mansfield, Ohio in the United States.

While this facility was used in a number of films, TV shows and music videos, it was made famous by the film The Shawshank Redemption when it was used for the majority of the movie.
