The Kentucky State Reformatory is located in LaGrange, Kentucky which is approximately (30) thirty miles north-east of Louisville. It is a medium security facility under the administration of the Kentucky Justice Cabinet, Department of Correction and is the state’s second largest institution in term of inmate population with a 2005-bed capacity.

The Kentucky State Reformatory was the third prison built in the Commonwealth of Kentucky following the establishment of a penal system by Kentucky’s Legislature in 1798. The Reformatory, whose history is closely linked with Kentucky’s political history and correctional philosophy, has undergone many changes during its existence.

There are now twelve (12) dormitories. A Special Management Unit (cellblock) with 130 cells to house inmates requiring higher security supervision. The Corrections Psychiatric Treatment Unit with a fifty (50) bed wing for special management and two (2) treatment program wings with each wing housing fifty (50) inmates, and a fifty-eight (58) bed Nursing Care Facility (the hospital closed in November, 1995). In addition, a twenty-two (22) bed outside detail living area exists outside the perimeter fence which house inmates that provide manpower for outside details and the institutions ambulance service. Over the years, changes in correctional philosophy have dictated that all open-wing housing areas be modified to individual rooms. Shifts in our thinking, together with experience has led us from our belief that renovation of existing dormitories is most feasible to the realization that demolition and new construction is the most cost effective option.
