Celebrate the supernatural in one of America’s most haunted prison’s. Built in 1866 this Gothic fortress was intended to lock away some of West Virginia’s most dangerous criminals. In its 129 years of operational history, this maximum security correctional facility saw 998 documented deaths including 94 executions at the hands of the state’s capital punishment laws. This left behind a powerful energy that many believe remains behind these bars, and many say that the lost souls of these inmates can still be heard from to this day!

Join us for this one of kind paranormal event, complete with SPECIAL GUESTS, speakers, vendors, and an “off-limits” tour through the penitentiary.
