Visit to The Moundsville Prison

Life behind bars! Those three words are very scary. We took a trip to a local prison today. We have been in many prisons on tours before but this one was different. It’s difference is that is recently closed in 1995. YOu can still feel the pain and sorrow once you cross the main gate and enter the cell blocks.

I have watch a few You Tube videos on prisons after our visit and I was surprised to find some stories and felt it could happen to anyone. Once such story was of a real-estate agent who left the bar one night and had a little to much to drink. On his way home he hit someone and killed them. Now he is serving time inside. Think how many times you left a bar or party thinking I can make it home. Stop next time and just spend the night where you are. You do not want to go inside!
