The prison has 104 cells. It also had no electricity, heating and no running water.  Some of the executions were hangings, and gas chambers. 14 men were executed all together nine were hung and five were gassed. The prison had different disciplinary actions, a dungeon, several solitary confident and a punishment pole were inmates were handcuffed and whipped by a rubber hose.   Many deaths beside executions happened at the prison, it’s reported that over 200 inmates have died due to living conditions, some guards were murdered by inmates who tried to escape. 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.

Paranormal Activity:

Due to the deaths of the executed and deaths of the inmates who died from the living conditions the ghosts are reportedly to roam the halls. 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.

Ghost Adventures was there to see if the prison was really haunted, here is what they found.
