Minnesota State Training School Entrance Walls

MnDOT Inventory Report

Located In: Red Wing, Goodhue County.

Constructed: ca 1935.

National Register: Not eligible

The entrance walls to the Red Wing Correctional Facility (formerly the Minnesota State Training School) were constructed in about 1935, most likely by federal relief labor. They once opened directly onto U.S. 61/U.S. 63. In 1963 the main highway was realigned slightly, and the old highway at the site became a service drive, as well as part of State Highway 292.
