Church of St. Dismas, The Good Thief is a small church built by the inmates of the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. Built in 1939, entirely by the labor of convicts, it stands tall even today. The beautiful Neogothic architecture of the building is eye catching. Maintained compltely by the prisoners, the interiors as well as the exteriors are preserved beautifully.
