Description

Ash promised you something haunted this week after Alaina’s three part deep dive into the Hillside Stranglers and boy did she pick a doozy. The Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia is supposedly one of America’s most haunted buildings. It has a fascinating, yet macabre history and it housed some of the world's most notorious criminals. We’ll get into all that history, talk about some of the most known prisoners and then dive into the most haunted cell blocks that remain standing today!

For 6 years I lived 10 minute walk from ESP. there is definitely a creepy vibe when walking past it in the middle of the night. during Sept and Oct there are spotlights on the towers.
