Ossining is home to the infamous Sing-Sing maximum security prison. In fact, until 1901 Ossining Village was named Sing-Sing, and changed their name to disassociate itself from the maximum security facility. The 3rd prison built by New York State, in 1824 the New York Legislature gave Elam Lynds, already the warden of Auburn Prison and a former army officer, the job of constructing a new prison. The name Sing Sing comes from the Native American word “Sinck Sinck,” which means “stone upon stone, reflective of the limestone in the area.
When opened in 1826, Sing Sing was considered a model prison, because it turned a profit for the state. The prison had strict discipline, requiring absolute silence on prisoners. This policy was enforced by beatings and brutal punishment for those that stepped out of line.
614 prisoners were executed in Sing Sing. The method was by electric chair. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, convicted of espionage, were executed there in 1953. Gerhard A. Puff was executed there in 1954 for murder of an FBI agent. The last person executed in Sing Sing was Eddie Lee Mays for murder on August 15, 1963. The electric chair has since been moved to Greenhaven Prison and, while it is in working order has never been used there.
