Became California Correction Institution for Men in 1954In 1933 California's first women's prison was established in Tehachapi to provide an environment more conductive to rehabilitation than San Quentin State Prison. Two-story buildings were constructed of reinforced concrete in the French Normandy style, with three residential "cottages" for inmates. Two of the cottages were complete living units, each with its own kitchen, dining room, living room, bathrooms and supervisor's quarters. A larger cottage had one complete segregated living unit on its lower floor for black women. The upper floor became a housing unit for older women.
