About Granville Correctional Institution**: *
Granville Correctional Institution houses offenders in both single cells and dormitories. When the facility opened in 1997, its main mission was to process newly admitted youthful offenders between the ages of 19 and 21. The prison also houses offenders that participate in job assignments and other programs. It is a close-custody prison, but it is also approved to house offenders assigned to maximum control, intensive control, disciplinary segregation and safekeeping status.

The prison's high-security maximum control unit (HCON) opened in October 1998. This high-security concept in correctional design is intended for the state's most violent and assaultive offenders. The "Supermax" (HCON) unit in Butner was the first of its kind in North Carolina.
Due to the demand of prison space, in 2003, the facility's age criteria for offenders changed from 18-21 to 19-25. In October 2005, the facility changed its name from Polk Youth Institution to Polk Correctional Institution to reflect this older population, including the HCON unit.

Polk Correctional Institution officially opened November 15, 1997 when offenders were transferred to the new facility. The new prison in Butner replaced an old unit on Blue Ridge Road in Raleigh. The original Polk facility acquired its name in 1920 from Col. William Polk, a decorated officer in the Revolutionary War. It was built on the grounds of Camp Polk, a U.S. Army tank base during World War I. Initially, offenders farmed the site.

On Oct. 4, 2021, the facility's name was changed to Granville Correctional Institution.
