The inmates housed at Huttonsville Jail and Work Camp located at US 250 PO Box 1 in Huttonsville, WV are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

The Huttonsville Correctional Center is a mixed custody prison that houses minimum to maximum security inmates located near Huttonsville in Randolph County, approximately 18 miles south of Elkins, WV on U.S. Route 250. It was created by an act of the Legislature in 1937 to relieve overcrowding at the West Virginia Penitentiary. It remained a branch of the parent institution until 1947, at which time the Legislature established it as a separate entity – the West Virginia Medium Security Prison. In 1970, the center received its current name by legislative act. Huttonsville Correctional Center has been in operation since 1939 and is the oldest and largest facility in the state.

With recently completed construction, the capacity of the Huttonsville Correctional Center is 1,135. Living quarters at this facility consist of military-style dormitories in the original building and single/multi cell housing in the new units. A Behavioral Improvement Unit and an Intake Unit were established upon the opening of the new additions. Huttonsville Correctional Center is one of the largest employers in Randolph County with a Staff of 388.

There are many educational programs, both vocational and academic, offered to inmates by The State Department Of Education. These classes give them an opportunity to engage in rehabilitation efforts during their incarceration. Inmates are able to attend classes in the Adult Basic Education Program to work towards or obtain GED certificates. Vocational Courses offered includes Auto Mechanics, Auto Body, Welding, Machine Shop, Carpentry, Masonry, Electrical, and Computer Lab.

Prison Industries operate the Braille Program and Furniture plant located at Huttonsville. Regular textbooks are transcribed into Braille and distributed throughout the United States. The furniture plant refinishes and builds new furniture for various agencies.

Huttonsville Work Camp (HWC)

The Huttonsville Work Camp (HWC) is located adjacent to the Huttonsville Correctional Center (HCC) on Route 250 in Randolph County. HWC opened April 1, 2012, as both an attempt to relieve overcrowding in the state’s correctional system, to offer another place of transition from higher security institutions to a minimum security environment and to prepare inmates for re-entry into society. Many of the educational opportunities at HCC are also made available to inmates at HWC, and some of the offenders housed at HWC are eventually eligible for transfer to the State’s Work Release Centers.

HWC operates as its own entity outside of the secure confines of HCC. It houses 48 non-violent inmates who are deemed low risk. These inmates are allowed to work outside of the property of the prison. Offenders at HWC work a variety of jobs in the local area which includes Division of Highways crews, WV Farm Commission, grounds maintenance, and a multitude of Special Projects. The Special Project crews assist in many different community services for local schools, non-profit organizations, and government facilities.
