The Plymouth District Library along with the Plymouth Township Historic District Commission is pleased to host historian, Joe Oldenburg, for a presentation on the Detroit House of Correction (DeHoCo), one of Detroit’s main prisons, and a precursor to men’s and women’s prisons, including the Scott Correctional Facility.

DeHoCo was a former penitentiary complex near Detroit, Michigan. Originally located in the city of Detroit, it was relocated to Plymouth and Northville townships between 1920 and 1931. DeHoCo closed in 2009 for budgetary reasons and was demolished in 2016.
