Haunted Houses - Idaho State Penitentiary

Idaho State Penitentiary

Why did we rate this "Confirmed"? Because multiple sources off the internet sites have experienced paranormal activity at this location & therefore warrants a rating of "Confirmed".

What's the tale? The Idaho State Penitentiary is home to many spirits of the incarcerated. The area known as "Siberia" is the solitary confinement area and emits freezing temperatures. The Rose Garden was once the area that hosted the gallows and many energy and temperature interuptions are around the Rose Garden. In Building 5 (Deathrow), an inmate jumped from the third story and killed himself, he is often seen as a greenish light.

What do we know as fact? We know from this site we know the penitentiary was built in 1870 and has been the location of many deaths including those who were executed on the gallows. The area of solitary confinement was known as "Siberia" and many found themselves in this location. Whether or not an inmate jumped to their death from the 3rd story seems only a fact carried from one haunted online site to another.

Thoughts: Obviously a place like a penitentiary is going to be alive with energy considering the events that take place.
