This Abandoned Prison In Pennsylvania Was Once Used As A Tuberculosis Sanatorium

Every abandoned building in Pennsylvania has its own story; some are well-known, while others are lost to the pages of time. There’s one thing on which we can all probably agree, however, and that is those forgotten buildings often set our imagination on fire as we wonder what was and what might have been. A glimpse at this abandoned prison in Pennsylvania might send a shiver down your spine as photos illustrate how life inside has simply stopped, preserved for perhaps as long as the buildings stand.
