Cool if im not mistaken Ghost Hunters went there and caught a ghost on film. Shadow like figure who seems to zip around in 1 hall of the place. Fact or Fiction who knows? They also dont like Orbs or dust particles caught during the flash of the camera and I notice you have some.:)

I wouldn't go into a closed down penitentiary to save my life. Call it superstition, but people can sense evil, and prisons just reek it.

Looks like a set for a horror film.

I've been there a couple times, it's gotten kind of bad over the past couple of years though

Are you allowed to just tour disused prisons like that? Seems like a bizarre tourist attraction.

I believe they do have scheduled tours.

Awesome pictures though, a bit disturbing however.:o

Do you know the last time it was still used?

<edit> After a quick trip to their website, I see it was closed in 1970. </edit>

LOL! It's a barber's chair.

There's alot of areas of the prison they won't let you tour, because their not up to code.
