Lots of stress and death plague the prison.  Many of the executions were slow and painful, the gas chamber took up to 10 minutes, and eyes popped tongues bloated, slow suffocation all happened. The hanging was a slow process as well.

The prison wasn’t all grizzly; it produced many goods for four major industries during the years of 1901 and 1917 the prison had a boom factory, but the factory was burned down by some of the inmates during a riot. The factory was then rebuilt and was used a shirt factory it brought more revenue to the state. The last products the prison made were blankets for the military and license plates. The prison then closed in 1981. It sat abandoned till 1987 were a movie was filmed, significant damage was done due to the building not being recognized as a historic place. In 1988 it was dubbed a museum and was named a historic place, it now gives tours too many visitors.

Maybe the ghost’s are scared that they will go to hell, so they haunt the prison instead.  The inmates were murders, rapists, burglars and committed other crimes. These men who committed horrible crimes now haunt the prison, so imagine what type of things the ghosts do to visitors.
