The Jess Dunn Correctional Center (JDCC) is located in Muskogee County 10 miles west of Muskogee. The minimum-security facility houses more than 1,100 male inmates. It was built in 1932 as a mental hospital for African-American patients. Since then, it has been a tuberculosis sanitarium, a juvenile girls facility, and a co-ed home.
ODOC took over the facility in 1980 from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. It is named after Jess Dunn, the warden of Oklahoma State Penitentiary from 1938 until 1941, when he died during an inmate escape attempt and shootout that year.
Today, JDCC covers approximately 1,100 acres, which includes four dormitories and a farm. In 2000, a 42-bed segregated housing unit was constructed with inmate labor.
