Let's go to Prison.

  • August 30, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • Ohio State Reformatory

It's time to get busy living, or get busy dying.

This is the final weekend for The Ohio State Reformatory (Shawshank Prison) in Mansfield.  

The prison offers different tours.  There is the self guided tours for $9, or guided tours for $14.  There is a $2 discount for youth, seniors, college students and military.  

We'll meet at 10:30 in the parking lot.  This is going to be awesome!  Who's with me?

This weekend is the 20th anniversary of The Shawshank Redemption.  There should be plenty of stuff to do after the tour if anyone is interested

Carpool Info:  We'll meet for the carpool at Giant Eagle (1000 E Dublin Granville Rd, Columbus, OH) at 9 AM.  Look for a blue Honda in an empty part of the parking lot.  I'll have my HikeOhio sign up or my flashers on.  We'll meet at 9 and leave no later than 9:10. 

Fear can hold you prisoner. 
 Hope can set you free.

    I would love to but I am out of town. Did you know that Tango & Cash was filmed there as well? I worked for the Prosecutor and met Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell during filming. Enjoy. It is an interesting place with lots of history. Still the only prison with "free standing cells".

    Seen this one at least 15 times, didn't know I was living so close to the actual place this was filmed at, just realized that today thanks to Mike! Looking forward to this one!
