Moundsville West Virginia Penitentiary
The eerie Moundsville West Virginia Penitentiary was in operation since 1876 before its abandonment in 1995. During its use, the prison gained infamy for doling out the death sentence via hangings, electrocution or beatings. The souls of the prisoners who died there are said to still haunt the area.
The Eastern State Penitentiary
A popular tourist attraction, The Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia is renowned for housing the souls of those who died at the premise. First opened in 1829, the penitentiary’s patrons had a penchant for all that was draconian and extreme.
If they weren’t torturing or killing various inmates, they’d forbid them to read, sing or communicate with others and would sometimes refuse them food and drinks. The penitentiary was shut down in 1971.
