Wellclose Prison, 1750, London, also known as Neptune Street Prison, was located off Wellclose Square near the Tower of London. The small prison was beneath a public house called the Cock and Neptune. The tavern was connected to a courthouse for which the pub's landlord acted as gaoler. Beer and spirits were sold freely in the prison which, like other prisons in this period, was run on a commercial basis.

Moundsville prison, West Virginia. This eerie location dates from 1866 and was the home to many dangerous and dark elements of society, including Charles Manson. Murders, suicides, violence, and executions all happened here. It is extremely paranormally active with noises, voices, and odors. Shadow people have been seen all over the location. Is this one of them? ;-$
