Eastern State Penitentiary

Recommendation by Lemi

Keep an ear out for clanging cell blocks, hurried footsteps, and freaky laughter at Eastern State Penitentiary! The massive Gothic-style prison is infamous for being the first to implement solitary confinement in the country. It was also known for conducting severe torture practices towards its inmates. After its shut-down in 1970, it’s believed that many unrested spirits remained in the premises, unable to find peace from the horrible conditions that led to their deaths. Horror fanatics should time their visits during the Fall season when the jail (now a museum) hosts “Terror Behind the Walls,” America’s largest haunted house!
