Folsom State Prison (FSP) is a California State Prison located in the city of Folsom, California. It is one of 33 prisons operated by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Opened 135 years ago in 1880, Folsom is the second-oldest prison in the state, after San Quentin, and was the first in the United States to have electricity. Folsom was also one of the first maximum security prisons, and as such witnessed the execution of 93 condemned prisoners over a 42-year period. Folsom is probably best known in popular culture for concerts performed at the facility by musician Johnny Cash, particularly in 1968, when the two shows of January 13 were made into a live album.
