Moundsville Penitentiary in West Virginia
The West Virginia Penitentiary has had a history of riots and executions. Even Charles Manson requested to be relocated here and his handwritten letter sits near the electric chair, "Old Sparky." All hangings were public until one inmate was decapitated in 1931. Brave visitors are allowed to stay overnight or freely roam inside until 6 a.m. on their own for the midnight tour. Some have reported seeing the "Shadow Man" and former inmates and guards roaming.
