Shawnee Correctional Center is a medium-security prison for men, under the Illinois Department of Corrections. The facility was opened in 1983 and expanded later in 1989. The facility is located in Vienna, Illinois, which is also home to Illinois State Prison only a mile away.
One unique aspect about the prison is that it includes an extensive working farm, and dairy, beef, pork operation, as well. The agricultural programs are actually used to help other state prisons. Inmates often either grow vegetables or work with cattle to produce milk and meat. There is also a canning factory at the Shawnee Correctional Center.
