[edit] History

The prison in Michigan City was established in 1860, but in 1909 the state decided it need separate housing for those "criminally insane" at Logansport & Central State Hospitals. In 1910 a new building was opened to house those inmates, it could house up to 180 inmates/patients. By 1945 all of them were moved to the new state hospital in Westville. The buildings have since been demolished but remains a prison today.
