Junction City served as a backdrop for Robert Redford’s 1980 film Brubaker. The fictional Wakefield State Penitentiary was in reality known as the Junction City Prison. The correctional center had closed two years before filming began, in 1977.
Unfortunately, it has been torn down since. The structure lasted a century before being demolished sometime in 2005. It stood on South Adock Road, as seen on the map.
