  • Al Capones Cell Eastern State Penitentiary Philadelphia Pennsylvania

Eastern State Penitentiary Weekend

Your weekend starts with an early check in where you'll find bread and water in your room.  The next day begins with a tour of Eastern State Penitentiary.  Opened in 1829 as part of a controversial movement to change the behavior of inmates through "confinement in solitude with labor," Eastern State Penitentiary quickly became one of the most expensive and most copied buildings in the young United States. It is estimated that more than 300 prisons worldwide are based on the Penitentiary's wagon-wheel, or "radial" floor plan.
Some of America's most notorious criminals were held in the Penitentiary's vaulted, sky-lit cells, including bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone. After 142 years of consecutive use, Eastern State Penitentiary was completely abandoned in 1971, and now stands, a lost world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers.

Sunday with a late check out you'll be paroled to spend the morning on the town.  Call for details.
