The West Virginia Penitentiary
A location that has seen hundreds of Executions, Murders, and Suicides
Join haunted Rooms America as you take on the West Virginia State Penitentiary, one of the most notoriously haunted prisons in the country! A night and location not to be missed!
Opening in 1876, West Virginia State Pen (aka Moundsville Prison) has born witness to hundreds of deaths, including 94 executions, as well as murders, and suicides aplenty. Not to mention the number of inmates that died after being subjected to severe beatings and violent punishments administered by prison guards.
In 1931 a death row inmate was completely decapitated during his execution in the prison. Up until 1951, hanging was the preferred method of carrying out the death sentence, though from that point on it was electrocution. Known as “Old Sparky” the electric chair used to end the lives of 9, still resides in the prison.
In total it’s believed nearly 1000 men lost their lives within the prison’s walls, and many of their souls still remain to this day. You may come face to face with one of their apparitions whilst entering the shower cages, or you may hear their disembodied screams as you make your way through the cell blocks!
This location has featured on numerous paranormal TV shows, such as Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters, and more, and has gained a reputation as one of the most haunted locations in the state.
