The Historic Ohio State Reformatory was used as a fictional penitentiary in New England in the movie, Shawshank Prison. Make sure to take the Hollywood Tour at the Reformatory.  The warden's office, Brooks' hotel room and even the replica carving on the ceiling that reads, "Brooks was here. So was Red" are on display. Please note the sign is a replica as the original was destroyed by vandals.The hole that Andy dug through his cell wall to escape is also on display as well as the tunnel he crawled through. It is about 2 feet in diameter. Chocolate syrup, saw dust and water were in the tunnel to mimic an actual sewer pipe.

Recently visited the prison. VERY old, but VERY interesting to compare what remains with what is shown in the movie. A few discrepancies, but still made for a terrific movie. Had to watch it again after coming back home. Would HIGHLY recommend!!!
