Moose Lake, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Minnesota Department of Correctional Facility celebrated 25 years today at its Moose Lake location.

The facility was once the home of the Moose Lake State Hospital.
When the state closed its hospital system local communities scrambled to retain jobs and local economies.

Bringing the prison to town was a joint effort by lawmakers and community members...who gathered to celebrate their success.

The Facility has undergone many remodels and houses over 1,000 inmates.
