Idaho Old Idaho Penitentiary This prison, built in 1872


This prison, built in 1872, was closed for nearly 50 years. Today it’s a full-stop tourist attraction, not unlike Alcatraz; you can tour the place, see where prisoners were held in solitary, and even get a peek at the gallows from death row. So, yeah, this place is haunted AF, largely by the prisoners who helped build it and ended their life sentences in the very walls they erected. Visitors report voices, a feeling of heaviness, and seeing apparitions, both with their eyes and in photos. With respect to the World’s Largest Potato, you can’t get that kind of experience with other Idaho tourist attractions. —AK
