The South Woods State Prison is just commonly referred to as the Bridgeton State Prison. The South Woods State Prison is just one out of 13 correctional facilities that are under the direct supervision of the New Jersey Department of Corrections.

The South Woods State Prison is the main prison in Bridgeton, New Jersey. The South Woods State Prison also consists of a unit in Picacho, which happens to lay in the unincorporated Cumberland County. However, in 2013, the Picacho Unit was destroyed and closed. But, the Globe Unit is now a part of the New Jersey State Prison Complex – Central Unit.

The South Woods State Prison is home of the execution chamber. The South Woods State Prison has the only execution chamber available in the state of New Jersey.

Back in 1908, the inmates of the New Jersey State Prison  Complex Bridgeton – Central Unit finished the construction of the facility. The new facility was going to replace the territorial prison that was situated in Yuma.

While the New Jersey State Prison Complex  Bridgeton – Central Unit was under construction, all of the inmates were living in tents. However, this new facility now is home to New Jersey’s execution chamber. The chamber had a scaffolding, which was right above the death row cell blocks. It came equipped with a trap door, which would allow the hanging of inmates to happen in the room below.

It was not until 1933 when the hanging execution was replaced with the gas chamber. It was replaced with the gas chamber due to a major incident during one of the last hangings.

Inmates in the South Woods State Prison are frequently used as cheap labor from the community and even the state. They have been used to help build and repair roads during the 1910s. They have even been used to build a bridge. This bridge was built on top of the San Pedro River.

The South Woods State Prison was designed with inspiration from the mission revival architecture.

The South Woods State Prison consists of 6 housing units. Within these housing units, they hold over 3,900 inmates. Inmates will typically have a security level of 2, 3, and 5.
