Stanly Correctional Center
Stanly Correctional Center, near Albemarle, is a minimum security prison for adult males.
In the FY 1998-99 budget, the General Assembly changed Stanley from a medium to a minimum security prison.
Stanly was one of 61 field unit prisons renovated or built during the late 1930s to house inmates who worked building roads. The prison's original dormitories are still used today. In 1976, inmates built a 24-cell unit to house inmates placed in segregation. by 1990, construction added a multipurpose building, recreation building and education building.
In August 1997, Correction Enterprises opened a satellite upholstery plant that was later converted to a sewing plant. An Enterprise employee supervises 20 inmates who make safety vests, mattress covers, sheets and pillow cases. Inmates also work on Department of Transportation road crews or as maintenance or kitchen help at the prison.
Stanly Community college works with the prison to provide a vocational class in auto mechanics. Classes for adult education and preparation for GED tests are also available.
