Once a state prison designed to change its inmates’ behavior through “confinement in solitude with labor,” the Eastern State Penitentiary is now a museum and historic site. Opened in 1829, an estimated 300 prisons copied the design of Eastern State Penitentiary. Learn about this facility, considered to be the most expensive and high tech prison of its day.
