Tillery Correctional Center opened as a minimum security prison for adult males in 1988. The prison was originally built to provide minimum security beds for inmates working at the Caledonia state prison farm when Halifax Correctional Center was a medium security unit. (Halifax was later changed back to a minimum security prison and eventually closed in 1996.)

In 1987, the General Assembly provided for creation of the prison with a 208-bed dormitory as part of the $28.5 million Emergency Prison Facilities Development program. Another 208-bed dormitory was added by lawmakers as part of the $55 million prison construction program in 1989.

The prison sits on a 20-acre site about a quarter mile from the Caledonia Correctional Institution. Tillery houses inmates in two buildings, each with four dorms, connected by a central multipurpose area. There are six additional buildings including an administrative building, program support building, dining hall, vocational building and multipurpose building.

Inmates work on farm crews at Caledonia and Odom prison farms. They may also be assigned to maintenance or janitorial duties at Caledonia, Odom or Tillery. Inmates may work on a community work squad where a correctional officer supervises them in short term, manual labor jobs for local governments. Other inmates work in the prison as kitchen or maintenance help.

Halifax Community College helps the prison provide vocational classes in plumbing, auto mechanics and electrical wiring. Classes for adult education and GED tests are also offered.
