At the time of it's operation this Penitentiary was not a place you wanted to be. The guards and councilors of the facility designed a variety of physical and psychological torture regimens for various infractions, including dousing prisoners in freezing water outside during winter months, chaining their tongues to their wrists in a fashion such that struggling against the chains would cause the tongue to tear, strapping prisoners into chairs with tight leather restraints for days on end, and putting the worst behaved prisoners into a pit called "The Hole", an underground cellblock dug under cellblock 14 where they would have no light, no human contact, and little food for as long as two weeks.

The Dent Schoolhouse:
Located at 5963 Harrison Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45248, USA.
The school opened up in 1894 and was shut down in the 1950's after it was discovered that a janitor named Charlie Mcfree killed some of the children and put the bodies in the basement.
People started to notice an odd smell coming from the basement of the school house, but the janitor convinced them it was backed up pipes. The smell would re-emerge in 1955 after the disappearance of seven more children. This time a mob formed and broke into the basement, only to find the rotting corpses of the missing students. The janitor was immediately suspected but no one was ever able to find him. Today, the school reportedly still holds the spirits of the children whos lives were taken so brutally, as well as the janitor himself. Maybe looking for more victims who knows.
The Dent Schoolhouse also happenes to be the home of one of the best haunted attractions in Ohio.

Pennhurst Asylum Spring City Pennsylvania:
Opening on November 23, 1908, thing's went from bad to worse. Overcrowding lead to uncleanliness, and as if that wasn't already bad in 1968, it was revealed through a five-part television news report that patients especially the children were being slapped, beaten (including the ones in wheelchairs) to arranging for patients to assault each other. Thankfully it was ultimately closed in 1987.
Now The Asylum is a Haunted attraction that scare's the hell out of thousands of people nightly every year this time of the month, and if the actors wearing the makeup don't scare you, perhaps maybe one of the spirits of the patients will, cause it's said this place is crawling with them.
Think I'm making the scare the hell out of you part up take a look at this video and you be the judge. Check out there Facebook page here.
