Special Historical Notes and Other Institutional Information
A new medium-security prison was first proposed in 1977, by the "Flad Report," a six-year plan commissioned by the Legislature, which designated “…the 300 bed medium security institution shall be the Oshkosh Correctional Institution (OSCI), located north of the city of Oshkosh at the site of the DOC Winnebago Correctional Farm." Construction was started in the fall of 1984, and OSCI was activated to receive inmates in September of 1986. In order to make room for the many expansion projects to the institution, the Winnebago State Prison Farm was razed and relocated to Waupun.
