Franklin Correctional Center opened in 1939 as one of 61 prisons renovated or built when the State Highway Department assumed management of state prisons and put inmates to work building highways. Over the years, Franklin housed minimum custody adult males, medium security youth and served as a processing center for adult males.

The prison's original dormitory still houses inmates. In the 1970's, inmates built a recreation building and a unit with 28 single cells for putting inmates in administrative and disciplinary segregation. In 1988, lawmakers provided a 104 bed dormitory for Franklin as part of a $17.4 million prison construction program. Another 104 bed dormitory was added as part of the $55 million prison construction program authorized in 1989. Another 104 bed dormitory was provided as part of the $87.5 million prison construction program in 1993.

Two of the 104 bed dormitories began housing inmates in 1991.
