On June 30, 2011 Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility would be closed as part of the state’s reorganization of New York’s prisons.

This facility had been an institution dedicated to the purpose of justice, healthcare, and reform for 99 years. It was founded as one of the country’s first treatment centers for alcoholism in 1912, the New York City Farm.

Later it became a reform school, the New York State Training School for Boys; and then the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility.
