Real Haunted House

Moundsville Penitentiary

Moundsville, West Virginia
By Lisa

Noted as one of American’s most violent correctional facilities, the Moundsville Penitentiary in West Virginia was the final stop for 1,000 criminals in it’s 100+ years of existence.  Several riots occurred at this prison over the years due to the poor, cramped conditions the prisoners had to endure.

Hangings and execution by electric chair were common in the prison quarters, as was murder–by other inmates.  The spirits and souls live on, still, to this day.  While the prison closed in 1995, visitors can still tour the facility and have reported seeing and hearing the spirits of these inmates.
