Old Idaho Penitentiary State Historic Site
The Idaho Penitentiary was first opened in 1872 and housed many of the most violent and infamous criminals of the West. Now over 130 years later, this penitentiary tour will take visitors around the prisons and shows how the inmates lived for the duration of the site’s 100 year history. The self-guided tours allow visitors to learn the back story of the prisoners and their everyday schedule within the prison. There are even rumors that the place is haunted, so beware of ghosts!
