The London Prison Farm was located about a mile northwest of London in Madison County. Construction was started in the early 1920's and at that time the institution was a branch unit of the Ohio Penitentiary. Individuals were not directly committed to the London Prison Farm. Rather, prisoners in the Ohio State Penitentiary (who were on good behavior) were transferred from the Penitentiary to the London Prison Farm. With completion in 1925 of its main building, the London Prison farm was established as a separate correctional institution.
