The Sheridan Correctional Center is a medium-security state prison for men located in Sheridan, LaSalle County, Illinois, owned and operated by the Illinois Department of Corrections.[1]

The facility runs unique programs for substance abuse and mental health issues.[2]

The extensive grounds (75 buildings on a total of 270 acres) were first opened in 1941 as a juvenile facility. It was run as the "Illinois State Reformatory at Sheridan" from 1949 through 1953, and the "Illinois Industrial School for Boys" from 1953 through 1973.
