Mid-Orange Correctional Facility

The former Mid-Orange Correctional Facility is an extensive property consisting of approximately 40 acres within a secured perimeter, and 686 acres outside the secured perimeter. The facility is made up of 81 buildings, including a 12-bed medical unit and a 10-bed special housing unit. Many of the buildings date from the 1930s.

Amenities include:

  • Onsite water distribution system, including wells, chlorination, and an elevated water tank;
  • Underground sanitary sewer piping to municipal wastewater collection system;
  • A farm, separated from the main facility; and
  • Lakefront property on Wickham Lake.

Mid-Orange was founded in 1912 as one of the country’s first treatment centers for alcoholism, known as the New York City Farm, and later became a boys’ reformatory school before converting to an adult medium-security correctional facility in 1977. Mid-Orange is located in south-west Orange County and is approximately 55 miles from New York City and 155 miles from Albany.
