The State Reform School at Marysville, established in 1860 (Stats. 1860, ch. 234), opened as California's first state institution for the reform of juvenile offenders. The school operated for eight years, transferring twenty-eight wards at its closing in 1868 to the San Francisco Industrial School. Established and run as a city and county institution in 1858 (ch. 209), the Industrial School at San Francisco remained open until 1892.
