What cottage were you guys in? I was in the Muskingum. I think the year was maybe 71 or 72, I am not sure. The only outstanding thing I recall is a english teacher that was killed while he was driving up that twisting road. I too remember them telling me that Bob Hope had been there, they said he used to live at Dean Hall.
I remember the marching and how we only had a certain amount of time to eat. I used to like the marching though, it made you feel powerful, part of something.
I remember the bug dust and rolling machines the state gave you if you had no smokes. Wow!

I am searching for information and history about "The Hill". I spoke to an official today at the prison and was told that they haven't used the old mansion for years. The problem with this is it is falling apart. They have no means to repair it. Sad thing is that they are saying it will end up being demolished. I would love to save it. It would be great to open it up for tourist and make it a museum. If anyone has information about their time there, or other information, please contact me.

Thanks.

PS. Just to let everyone know, I live up the road from the beautiful mansion and would hate to see it disappear.

I was there in '74 as well. I don't remember my number and didn't keep anything after release in 1975. Turned 16 on the hill. I do remember that. Was on the lagonda cottage. I think Mr. Hicks was the director of the cottage. I remember a couple of the "guards". Mr. Fig, Mr. Harr, Mr. Buchette. We all got our homeline signed by everybody then taped it up so the ink wouldn't fade and it would last longer. I remember the day I trough it away. I remember getting a (relatively) new pair of pants and a striped shirt when I was released. Bug dust was the treat!
