The building that is now Santiam Correctional
Institution was constructed in 1946 and used as an annex to the Oregon
State Hospital for mental health patients. In 1960 the building was
acquired by Fairview Home and given the name Frederic Prigg Cottage.
In 1977 Prigg Cottage opened as a minimum custody pre-release center to
ease overcrowded conditions at Oregon State Penitentiary, Oregon State
Correctional Institution and Oregon Women's Correctional Center. During
the 1980's, Prigg Cottage evolved into CDRC (Corrections Division
Release Center), DCRC (Department of Corrections Release Center), and
finally, in 1990 became Santiam Correctional Institution (SCI). For
efficiency SCI and MCCF were administratively joined in 1992 under the
management of one superintendent.
The institution places inmates in a full range of jobs and programs.
Many of the labor-type jobs are in the form of crews contracting with
state agencies, local organizations and private industry within a
60-mile radius of Salem, Oregon. A variety of cognitive, substance
abuse, transition and education programs are available to inmates
housed at SCI.
The prison complex sits on a 12-acre parcel with nine acres inside the
