MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility

MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility is a correctional facility in Woodburn, Oregon, United States. It is administered by the Oregon Youth Authority. MacLaren incarcerates males from ages 13 to 25 who have committed crimes ranging from Assault and Sex Offenses to murder.

One of MacLaren's most infamous residents was Kip Kinkel, who in 1998 murdered his two parents, as well as two students at his Springfield, Oregon, high school. On June 11, 2007, aged 24, Kinkel was moved to the Oregon State Correctional Institution to serve the remainder of his de facto life sentence.

Another famous resident of Maclaren's was Gary Gilmore, who was sent there in 1955 for several charges including shoplifting, car theft, and assault and battery. He was later executed by firing squad in 1976 for two murders committed when he was 36 years old, being the first person executed since the Furman v. Georgia case.
