The State Correctional Institution at Greene began negotiations with Greene County Redevelopment Authority on November 15, 1990, to purchase property for a 1,000-bed maximum-security prison.  The 128-acre site, known as the Allison Tract, is located in Franklin Township, Waynesburg, PA.  The lease for the institution site was signed by General Services Secretary David L. Jannetta on May 7, 1991.  Ground breaking occurred on October 29, 1991, and the institution was dedicated November 9, 1993.  The first inmates arrived on January 3, 1994.  The Institution reached its inmate capacity as of May 3, 1995.  Construction was completed in March, 1999 on two new housing units within the perimeter.  One of these units (K) houses inmates with mental health needs; and the second (L) houses Level 5 inmates.
