Eastern State Penitentiary


Opened in 1829, Eastern State Penitentiary is a prison in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia. The prison ceased operations in 1971 and sat abandoned until it was converted into a tourist attraction in 1994. The prison was, debatably, the first penitentiary in the world and the revolutionary design served as a blueprint for many other prisons around the world.
