The Minnesota Correctional Facility – Red Wing is a state juvenile correctional facility located in Red Wing, Minnesota. As of July, 2010, it housed 111 juvenile males, operating at about half of its licensed capacity.[2] The prison also houses over 40 adult male prisoners in minimum-security, reentry housing.

Built in 1889 as the Minnesota State Training School, the original Romanesque building was designed by Warren B. Dunnell, the architect of a number of historical public buildings in Minnesota, including the Minnesota State Public School for Dependent and Neglected Children, the Fergus Falls State Hospital Complex, the Minnesota Soldiers' Home Historic District, and the Pillsbury Academy Campus Historic District.

The institution served as the subject of "Walls of Red Wing", a folk and protest song by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan.
