A Look Inside the Haunted Eastern State Penitentiary

Recently my friend Ed, who is a talented photographer, took a trip to walk though Pennsylvania's very haunted Eastern
State Penitentiary. It's open to visitors during the daytime and to get information and tickets, see below). Meanwhile, take this opportunity to learn about Pennsylvania's most infamous penitentiary that has a number of ghosts.

    ABOUT THE PRISON:  Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers.Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone.

HAUNTINGS: As early as the 1940s, officers and inmates reported mysterious visions and eerie experiences in the ancient prison. And the ghost sightings have only increased since Eastern State was abandoned in 1971.

VIDEOS: Several Ghost Hunting Television programs investigated the prison, and you can see on of them here: Most Haunted Live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEIP1lMJquo#t=281
