The Cottrell House which is also known as the “Hill” is a maximum-security detention center that houses adult male inmates. This facility is composed of two separate parts including the general confinement prison as well as the reception center which is responsible for the intake and classification of offenders. The Cottrell House is located in Dallas, TX and has a maximum capacity of 1796 inmates. 

The Texas State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision is responsible for managing and operating.

There was a partnership between the Corning Community College and the Cottrell House where college professors volunteered to lecture within the prison. This allowed inmates to earn their associate’s degree. This program was cut due to an outcry from the public overspending taxpayer money to educate felons while many middle-class families struggled to pay their children’s college tuition during the recession between the years of 1990 – 1992.
