773. Minnesota Home School for Girls

Here girls were detained for a gender specific crime called immorality. An article describes that it was done in the 1930’s. It is not certain when this was stopped. The Minnesota Home School for Girls was located in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. The facility opened in 1911 and continued under changing names to 1999.

It could not have been fun to be detained for an alleged crime which was only something girls could be convicted of.
