A Visit To The Haunted Yuma Territorial Prison In Arizona Isn’t For The Faint Of Heart
What’s more terrifying than a late 17th-century prison in the middle of the Arizona desert that used to house some of the Southwest’s most notorious inmates? If it’s haunted, of course. Yuma Territorial Prison is absolutely crawling with the ghosts of those formerly incarcerated within its harsh, unforgiving walls, and you can experience the paranormal activity firsthand.
The park is open daily from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. From June 1 thru September 30, hours are modified to 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Thursday-Monday (closed Tuesday and Wednesday.)
