Chillicothe Industrial Home for Girls, also known as Chillicothe Correctional Center, is a national historic district located at Chillicothe, Livingston County, Missouri. The district encompasses 10 contributing buildings, 1 contributing site, and 7 contributing structures, at a former industrial home. It developed between about 1889 and 1970, and includes representative examples of Colonial Revival and Streamline Moderne style architecture. Notable buildings include the McReynolds Cottage (188-1889) by Morris Frederick Bell, who also designed the original campus; Blair Cottage (1957-1958); Hearnes Office Building and Clinic (1967-1968); Donnelly Cottage (1957-1958); Stark Cottage (1937-1938); Hyde School (1922); Park Cottage (1937-1938); Food Service Building (1957-1958); Laundry (c. 1920); Power House (c. 1888-1889, c. 1957-1958). The home officially closed as a juvenile facility in 1980 and re-opened as an adult correctional center in 1981. The new Chillicothe Correctional Center opened in 2008, and the former Industrial Home site was declared surplus.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.[1]
