Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary

With Halloween just around the corner, Miss Iggy thought this would be a perfect time to show you her "ghost-hunting" photos from one of America's most historic state prisons--and also one of the most haunted, the Eastern State Penitentiary (ESP) in Philadelphia which she visited last August.

The ESP is a favorite halloween haunt for people who want to put their "ESP" (extra-sensory perception) to the test. It has been featured in ghost-hunting shows such as "Most Haunted" and "Ghost Adventures." Craving for some paranormal activity in the dark? Come here for their "twilight tours," but they only have them in the summer. Other than that, this facility is open to tourists the whole year round for daytime tours, except for major holidays.

In 1965, the U.S. Federal Government designated ESP as a National Historic Landmark.

There's terror behind these walls, they say, aside from the visible semi-ruin state it's in. Miss Iggy was anxious about the tour!
