Avenal State Prison
Our Price: $59.95
California Institution for Women opened in 1952 and until 1987 was California's only prison for women felons. It was originally called 'Frontera' a feminine derivative of the word frontier- a new beginning. The campus like design was keeping with the 1950's progressive notion of rehabilitation
When it opened as California's third correctional institution in 1941, CIM was unique in the field of penology because it was known as the "prison without walls." The only "security" fence around the facility units was a five-strand barbwire livestock fence, intended mainly to keep the dairy cows from wandering through the living areas. CIM has since increased security to meet the challenges a vastly different inmate population requires.
