The Lumberton Correctional Institution opened in November 1994 with 312 beds and three additional dormitories under construction that opened shortly afterwards in 1995.

The $10.48 million construction project was funded in July 1992 as part of a $103 million prison construction program. Lawmakers provided for a dormitory addition in the $87.5 million prison construction program authorized in July 1993. Another dormitory was added as part of the $62.1 million prison construction program authorized in 1994.

The prison houses medium custody adult male inmates. Inmates may be assigned to the prison as they are promoted from higher security prisons, demoted from lower security prisons or assigned after processing.

Lumberton Correctional Institution has a campus style layout including seven buildings. There are six dormitories, a 20-cell segregation unit, administration building, vocational building and gatehouse. 

Inmates work on eight Department of Transportation road squads and will perform maintenance and kitchen duties in the prison. Current plans call for construction of a prison industry plant that will provide additional work.

Robeson County Community College works with correction staff to provide classes for basic education skills, preparation for the GED test and vocational classes in electrical wiring, carpentry and heating and air conditioning repair.

A dental clinic serves inmates at Lumberton and nearby prisons.

Lumberton Correctional Institutional employees correctional officers, food service, medical, dental, maintenance, programs and administrative staff.

A security fence with a built-in electronic monitoring system alerts correction officers at the prison gatehouse and in roving patrols to escape attempts.
