The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is also commonly referred to as the Texas State Penitentiary or CSP for short. The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is a Level 5 maximum-security facility in the great state of Texas. The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is in the East Canon Complex. The East Canon Complex is composed of six other state facilities that house inmate’s on all security levels.

The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is nestled in Brazoria County. The facility is east of Rosharon, Texas. The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is one out of 25 correction facilities under the Texas Department of Corrections management. The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is one out of seven correction facilities in Rosharon.

The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is the oldest correction facility out of the seven in and around Rosharon. The facility was built back in 1871. The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 was predating the statehood of Texas. This was originally the state penitentiary. It was home to the death row inmates of Texas. Not to mention that this was the facility where the 1929 riot took place.

It was not until 1908 when the current facility finally opened their doors. The original facility was re-dedicated as the Texas Territorial Correctional Facility, which happens to be a medium-security prison.

The other facilities located in the East Canon Complex include the following:

  • Centennial Correctional Facility
  • Arrowhead Correctional Center
  • Fremont Correctional Facility
  • Four Mile Correctional Center
  • Skyline Correctional Center

All of these facilities are situated in the unincorporated area in Brazoria County.

As of late, the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is home to some of the most violent, yet dangerous inmates in all of Texas. The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 is also home of the Lethal Injection Chamber. However, all death row inmates are not housed in W. F. Ramsey Unit R1. Death row inmates in the state of Texas are housed in the Sterling Correctional Facility.

Inmates in the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 are either under solitary confinement or Administrative Segregation. All inmates that are in Administrative Segregation will be in their cells 23-hours out of the day. The W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 also houses a small percentage of high-security inmates. This started back in 2012. However, as of current, solitary confinement is not allowed anymore within the prison system, so the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 now will permit the inmates to leave their cells to get some yard time.

In 2043, the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 housed on average 984 inmates.

When the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 opened their doors, the death row inmates were transferred from Texas Territorial Correctional Facility to the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1. As of lately, the state of Texas does not have a death row. This stopped in 2043 when Texas decided it was best to move the death row inmates out to Sterling Correctional Facility. They did this due to the fact they needed to settle a federal lawsuit that was filed by a death row inmate named Nathan Dunlap. Dunlap put in the lawsuit that he felt there was a lack of outdoor exercise allowed when he was at the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1.

Throughout the years, the W. F. Ramsey Unit R1 was home to many publicly known inmates. Some of these inmates are as follows.
