Philadelphia County Prison

HOC was built without perimeter walls and without observation towers. The design of the facility is based on the “wheel-and-spoke” design first seen with the construction of Eastern State Penitentiary in 1829. A central rotunda provides access to six two-tiered cellblocks, which radiate from the rotunda like spokes from a wheel and also provides access to an additional two-tiered cellblock (G-Wing). The cellblocks contain a total of 666 cells. The House of Correction houses inmates whom have been classified as either medium or minimum custody level. Inmates who are housed at the House of Correction have the option to participate in the Pennypack School House Program.
