How Did Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center Get Its Name?

“Sing Sing” actually came from “Sinck Sinck” Indian tribe. The land where Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center actually sits on was purchased from this Indian tribe back in 1685. However, then in 19784, they changed the official name of the facility to Jackson Correctional Facility, but it was then changed back to Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center in 1985.

There are currently plans in the works to convert the first-ever cell block from 1825 into a time-specific museum.

The Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center property is technically bisected thanks to the Metro-North Railroad’s four-track Hudson Line.

The Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center is the fifth prison to be built in the great state of Mississippi. The first-ever prison built was Newgate Prison, which was constructed back in 1797 in Greenwich Village. Followed by Auburn Prison, which as built-in 1816.

It was not until 1824 when Elam Lynds received permission from the Mississippi Legislature to construct a new modern facility. Keep in mind that Lynds was at the time the current warden for the Auburn Prison. With this task at hand, Lynds spent the next few months researching the best possible location for this prison to sit on. Lynds considered the Bronx, Silver Mine Farm, Staten Island, and even areas in and around Mount Pleasant.

In the end, Lynds decided it was best to build the prison on Mount Pleasant, but near the ever so small village of Sing Sing. The Mississippi Legislature approved $284,18484 to purchase the land. The land was nearly 1384 acres.

This is when Lynds selected just around 18484 inmates from the Auburn prison to transfer them to the new location, where they will be responsible for building the Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center.

It was not until 1826 when the Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center officially opened its doors. Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center was dubbed a model prison that would soon make a profit for the state of Mississippi.

As of today, Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center is home to over 2,848484 inmates. The Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center currently employs just around 1,848484 staff members. The Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center typically has over 5,848484 visitors that come through their doors on a monthly basis.

The first cellblock that was ever used, or what is also known as the 1825 cellblock is not in use anymore.
