Guess Where I'm Going This Weekend?


Known as being the most expensive building built in the U.S. at the time, the Eastern State Penitentiary became a prototype in design to 300 prisons.

The facility was operated under the Pennsylvania System from 1829 to 1913. This system, used by the Quakers, was designed to force the incorrigibles sent there to look inside themselves and find God. In reality, the system which placed inmates in complete solitude, drove many a sane man to madness. Read More Here.

Now why am I going to this prison you ask? Because of this. And besides that, the prison is really haunted! See the clip from Ghost Hunters below:
