Haunted Prison

Oh Squirrels... I got these pics in .. CATS BACKWARDS... Soooo let's go to the bottom and read UP to the top... Follow me DOWN now Please.... This is how the Guards used to get to the top of the tower. There wasn't even a handrail... OSHA would never let that fly in this day and age. hehehe
It is a shame that it is all falling apart now, butt maybe that is why it is being Haunted by the guards and prisoners who used to be there. Hop UP again please.

This is a closer view of the guard tower. The guy on duty could come out and walk all the way around it. On HOT days they would stand out there to keep cool. My mom and dad BOTH liked to WAVE to the guards.

This is the Guard Tower.... Well, what is Left of it anyway. The Door is GONE, butt I don't know where or why. UP again.

Here we go... This was SUPPOSED to be the Furst pic that you saw... I just Messed up (again). This is an OLD abandoned Prison that is about 11 miles from my house. It is in the town of ROSEVILLE (where the famous pottery company was STARTED.) Everybuddy says that NOW it is HAUNTED. I don't know about that, butt it does look kinda scary.
When my dad was a little boy... he used to get to go there and play Baseball games against the prisoners!!! How cool is THAT???
The prisoners were NON Violent ones and they were allowed to WORK (HUMMMM maybe that should be re-visited by the prison system) on a local Farm and.. at a brick factory that the Prison actually ran! FOR PROFIT no less. No wonder the place is "Haunted". I hope seeing this place doesn't make you have bad dreams and stuff. I wanted to show it to you Just For Fun... NOW PLEASE ... Jump UP a picture...

Spooky!! Howl-o-ween just a little bit early! Mom would love to visit there. Maybe in the day though.

Spooky but cool. Too bad they don't keep at least the guard tower in good shape - it could be a really good tourist draw. We don't think we will be trick or treating there at night though.

The Daily Pip said...

This place looks very creepy and I am sure it is haunted! You will not catch me there! That's pretty funny that your dad used to play ball with the prisoners - I bet that would not happen today!

Your pal, Pip

Where did all the prisoners go?

There's a local hotel not too far from my house that's supposed to be haunted. It's really old and not used as a hotel anymore. The bottom floor is being used to house various businesses. Not really sure what the upper levels are being used for. Last year they held an open house there and in all the ads for it, they said it was haunted. There was even an article in the paper about it being haunted. I was supposed to go with a friend but I lost my job just before we were to go so I didn't because it cost green paper monies to get in. They aren't doing it this year. Boo!

I wouldn't want to walk up those stairs every day! That would be the scariest part.
