Correctionville is a city in Woodbury County, Iowa, United States. It is part of the Sioux City, IA–NESD Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 821 at the 2010 census. The town name comes from the original survey of the town. The site lies on a surveyor's correction line, which adjusts for the convergence of the meridian lines. This keeps the section boundaries approximately apart, making all sections approximately the same size (approximately 1 square mile). This correction line is aligned with 5th street through the downtown; there are no north/south streets extending straight past 5th street. Correctionville has the longest single name in the state of Iowa.
