Ohio State Reformatory | East Cell Block

The cells in the east block are built differently than the ones in the west block.  Billed as “the world’s largest freestanding steel cell block,” it is indeed impressive.  Six levels of steel cells with enclosed walkways around each level.  You are cautioned about going in any of the cells and closing the door behind you since they don’t have working keys.  The natural afternoon light in the room was beautiful, but this place is far from cozy.
