Mission Statement

California's second oldest prison, Folsom primarily houses Level II and Level III inmates. In addition, it has a minimum security unit. At Folsom, a walled perimeter encompasses five general population cell blocks and an Administrative Segregation Unit. This portion of the prison includes one of the state's best-known prison industries, the license plate factory.


History

Folsom State Prison was opened in 1880, and covers 40 acres.

The Folsom Museum is located near the entrance of Folsom Prison. Run by volunteers, the museum contains documents and artifacts from throughout Folsom's long and colorful history.

Folsom State Prison's location was selected due to an unlimited amount of native stone for building the prison. Also, the American River offered ample water and formed a natural boundary for the prison. As one of the nation's first maximum prisons, Folsom received it's first 44 inmates on July 26, 1880. They were transferred by boat and train from San Quentin.

Originally designed to hold inmates serving long sentences, habitual criminals, and incorrigibles, Folsom State Prison gained the reputation of having a violent and bloody beginning history. Prior to the completion of the granite wall in the 1920's, the prison witnessed numerous escapes; the first one occurred in 1880. The prisoners' attempts to escape took many lives.

Folsom State Prison History


Folsom State Prison (FSP), also known as Folsom State Prison, Represa is one of 33 prison facilities operated by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). FSP is located in Represa, California, near the City of Folsom in Sacramento County, 20 miles (32 km) from the state capital of Sacramento, California, USA.
As of the United States 2000 Census, the two prisons located in Represa (FSP and California State Prison - Sacramento) had a combined inmate population of 7,246 housed at level 1 and 2 security, the two lowest levels of security for prison facilities operated by the CDC. Level 1 prisoners are housed in open dormitories without a secure perimeter, and Level 2 prisoners may be housed in open dormitories with secure perimeter fences and armed guard coverage. However, there are no dormitories within the FSP secure perimeter, and prisoners are housed in two person cells. In 2004 the majority of level 2 prisoners were moved to other prisons and level 3 prisoners took their place. FSP's population in early 2005 is approximately 3,400.
There are five housing units within the secure perimeter, including the original two-tiered structure. Unit 1 is the most populous cellblock in the United States, with a capacity of nearly 1,200 inmates on four five-tiered sections.
All cells include toilet, sink, bunks, and storage space for inmate possessions. There are two dining halls, a large central prison exercise yard, and two smaller exercise yards. The visiting room includes an attached patio as well as space for non-contact visits.
FSP is California's second oldest prison facility, long known for its harsh conditions in the decades following the California Gold Rush. Prison construction began in 1878 on the site of the Stony Bar mining camp along the American River. The prison officially opened in 1880. Inmates spent most of their time in the dark behind solid boiler plate doors in stone cells measuring 4 feet by 8 feet (1.2 by 2.4 m) with 6 inch (150 mm) eye slots. Air holes were drilled into the cell doors in the 1940s, and the cell doors are still in use today.
FSP was the first prison in the world to have electric power, which was provided by the first hydroelectric powerhouse in California. The quarry at FSP provided granite for the foundation of the state capitol and much of the gravel used in the early construction of California's roads.
Although Folsom now houses primarily medium security prisoners, Folsom was one of America's first maximum security prisons; a total of 93 prisoners were hanged at Folsom between December 13, 1895, and December 3, 1937. After that time executions were carried out in the gas chamber at California's San Quentin Prison.
Folsom Prison was made famous by country music singer Johnny Cash, who narrated a fictional account of an outlaw's incarceration in his song "Folsom Prison Blues" (1956), and performed a live concert at Folsom Prison in 1968, opening the show with the eponymous track. Contrary to popular belief, Cash was never himself incarcerated in this or any state or federal prison, although he did spend the occasional night in the slammer, including one occasion for posession of illegal drugs.
FSP has been the location of a number of feature films, including Riot in Cell Block 11, American Me, and Inside the Walls of Folsom Prison, which was the inspiration for Cash's song.
Warden Clarence Larkin was stabbed during an escape attempt in 1937 and died from his wounds, becoming the only California warden to have been killed in the line of duty. Violence at the prison peaked during the 1970s and 1980s when the Aryan Brotherhood and other prison gangs made prisons increasingly dangerous. The establishment of Secure Housing Units, first at California State Prison Sacramento and later at Pelican Bay State Prison and California State Prison Corcoran, did much to control gang-related violence.
California's vehicle license plates have been manufactured at FSP since the 1930s. Other prison industries include metal fabrication and a print shop.
A museum is located on the prison grounds, which is open to the public from 10-4. There is also a shop with inmate-made handicrafts for sale to the public. The gift shop is open five days a week, but not on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Famous people that were incarcerated include Charles Manson, musician Rick James, and recently Death Row Records owner Suge Knight.
Also the 1992 film American Me directed by Mexican-American actor Edward James Olmos was filmed on site at Folsom State Prison, where much of the story takes place, depicting the rise of Chicano gangs inside the southern Californian prison system.

Inmate Quarterly and Special Purchase Packages/Books and Magazines/Privilege Groups

Quarterly Packages:

The California Inmate Quarterly Package system allows you to send much-desired items to your incarcerated loved one. Each institution sets it’s own rules as to what items are allowed and prohibited and items vary by privilege groups. As a result, vendors therefore provide services to a limited amount of Facilities, Camps, CCF’s or the LA County Jail System. All Quarterly Packages are limited to a maximum weight of 30 Lbs. Nor can they exceed dimensions of 24” x 24” x 24”. All vendors list those institutions for which they provide goods and services and what privilege groups.

Special Packages:

Special Packages allow for the purchase of Electronics, Accessories, Musical Instruments, Under Garments and Clothing, Correspondence Courses, Legal Material and Faith Based Items. That would otherwise crowd a quarterly package beyond its allowed weight or dimensions. There is no limit to the amount of special packages allowed in a calendar year. However due to the limited items available and limited space for which to store their property. Special Order Packages will most likely only be utilized one or twice per a calendar year. Note: Some institutions require that Special Order Packages be ordered by and paid for by the inmates themselves. Individuals are not allowed to purchase Special Order Packages and have them sent directly to their inmates at some institutions. Contact your facilities R& R Department to assure that you can send special packages direct.

Inmate Quarterly Package, Yearly Quarters:

1St – January 1 Through March 31.
2nd – April 1 Through June 30.
3rd – July 1 Through September 30.
4th – October 1 Through December 31.

American River

Three architecturally interesting bridges span a section where eddies swirl around large boulders. Lovely toyon, pine and oak trees grow along its banks and wildlife is attracted to the river, as are picnickers, cyclists, swimmers, fishermen, equestrians and rowers.



Folsom Lake SRA
With nearly 4 million annual visitors, Folsom Lake State Recreation Area is one of the most visited units in the California State Parks System. The state recreation area is defined by the American River which is dammed at two points, creating Folsom Lake and Lake Natoma.

Folsom Lake - On the Folsom side of Folsom Lake, people gather at Beal’s Point and Folsom Point. Beal’s Point on the north bank of Folsom Lake has a large RV and tent campground, as well as picnic areas and launch ramp. Folsom Point, on the south bank, has several scenic picnic areas and a launch ramp. Brown’s Ravine in nearby El Dorado Hills has a large marina, with marine gas station, two launch ramps, dry storage and picnic areas. Granite Bay, north of Beal’s Point, has a large sandy beach, launch ramps, marina store and food and boat rental concessions.



Lake Natoma - Formed by Nimbus Dam, Lake Natoma is a quiet body of water that is a favorite of rowers, paddlers, small sailboats, kayakers, swimmers, divers and small fishing boats. The California State University, Sacramento Aquatic Center at Nimbus Dam is site for many intercollegiate rowing championships. Lake Natoma is considered to be one of the finest rowing venues in the United States.
