North Central Unit
|Managed by||Arkansas Department of Correction|
The North Central Unit, sometimes known as the Calico Rock Prison, was founded as a way to bring jobs to the area and to build a prison facility in the northern part of the state. At the time of its founding, local residents protested against the facility being built.
In 2010, the prison expanded to house an additional 100 beds.
