About the Penitentiary:
The Missouri State Penitentiary, also known as "The Walls", was a prison in Jefferson City, MO
that operated from 1836-2004. Part of the Missouri Department of Corrections, it served as the state
of Missouri's primary maximum security institution. Before it closed, it was the oldest operating
penal facility west of the Mississippi River and was infamously referred to as
the "Bloodiest 47 acres in America" Some say the entire place is haunted
