A Tour Of This Haunted Prison In Arizona Is Not For The Faint Of Heart
It seems there is nothing quite as creepy as walking through a place that, once inhabited by hundreds, now sits abandoned from human use. Some exist almost entirely forgotten while others have obtained a historical presence that preserves its history, cultural importance, and structural condition. The place we’re going to examine today can also add “potentially haunted” to that list.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
