How would you like if this ghastly duo was leering down at you just as you where being taking to the pen? Eastern State Penitentiary, that is.
Built to reform instead of punishment it was the first penitentiary opening in October 1829.
I wish I could show you more pics but since the bus got stuck in traffic and we were over a hour late unfortunately we got the nickel tour. Hard to take good pictures when you are being rushed. I do not blame the prison as much as I do the bus company for very poor time management. I guess that we will have to make a second trip on our own. On the bright side, we did enjoy the candlelight ghost tour.
Our guide was very nice and told us many stories of haunted places of Philly.
I would recommend this to anyone, but just be sure to be prepared to walk ALOT!
