Haunted house attraction during October. Historical site and the first penitentiary-style prison in the world. 15 minute walk away.

Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world's first true penitentiary. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America's most notorious lawbreakers, including bank robber "Slick Willie" Sutton and Al Capone.
