Opened in 1829 as part of a controversial movement to change the behavior of inmates through "confinement in solitude with labor," Eastern State Penitentiary quickly became one of the most expensive and most copied buildings in the young United States.

After the Revolution, Benjamin Franklin began hosting meetings about ways to reform criminals, rather than just punish them. Eastern State Penitentiary was the result.
A great place to go see an old prison. During September-November this old prison is converted into a haunted house at night. It’s a fun attraction for people of all ages.
