Colorado State Reformatory, Buena Vista, Chaffee, Colorado


Notes: Buena Vista Correctional Facility (BVCF), was built in 1891 as the Colorado State Reformatory (CSR) and opened in 1892. The facility was constructed using the labor of 37 inmates from the Colorado State Penitentiary (now Colorado Territorial Correctional Facility) in Canon City, CO. It originally housed approximately 125 inmates with 20 staff at that time. The Facility houses approximately 826 inmates today.
In 1984, temporary units (known as "the MODS") were brought onto the grounds to create a lower security facility. These remained until the current permanent housing units, programs and administration building were completed in 1999. The Buena Vista Minimum Center (BVMC) houses 288 minimum restricted offenders and has its own kitchen and visiting room.
