GHOST TOUR MO STATE PENITENTIARY/JEFFERS­ON CITY DAY OUTING

GHOST TOUR MO STATE PENITENTIARY/JEFFERSON CITYDAYOUTING

Ever wanted to check out a prison? Want to hear about the tales behind the 175 year history of the Missouri State Penitentiary? Learn about the famous inmates and escapees? Then take a road trip with us to Jefferson City, MO on October 27th.

We will meet up and carpool to the State Capitol for a day of sightseeing. We can decide as a group on places we want to check out. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Missouri State Capitol
  • Governor’s Mansion
  • Lewis & Clark Monument at Katy Trailhead Plaza
  • Central Diary for their famous ice-cream
  • Lunch at Prison Brews
  • Runge Nature Center

-Feel welcomed to post your suggestions on the comment boards.

-Once we get a better idea of how much sightseeing the group wants to do, we will finalize leaving times for the carpool. Right now we will set it for 9am.

Then after sightseeing, head over for the 2 hour Ghost tour @ 8pm.

Description : This "original" Missouri State Penitentiary tour discusses the 175 year history of the Missouri State Penitentiary and covers both the prison's history itself and the history of penal eras in the United States. In addition, the ghost tour talks about strange and unusual occurrences behind the walls. In this tour, guests are guided through Housing Unit 1 (Control Center), A-Hall – the oldest building still standing on the Missouri State Penitentiary site (built in 1868), Dungeon Cells, The Upper Yard, Housing Unit 3 and the Gas Chamber. Guests will each be given a battery-powered flashlight providing ample light to safely move about the facility. There is a Souvenir Stand open and available during the tours.

Purchase tickets directly through them for the 2pm tour for $12 each at:

https://reservations.missouripentours.com/Missouri-State-Penitentiary/Book_Ticket.asp

(the evening tours are SOLD OUT already!) I will be emailing a tentative itinerary shortly to all attendees.

Afterwards, we can head out for a nightcap or drive back. It’s about a 2 hour drive, 130 miles are so from Downtown STL. If you are interested in carpooling or offering to drive, please indicate so in your RSVP.

    The Alton ghost tour is lame. Did it once before and it was soooo hot. Might be more fun in the fall because the weather is more reasonable for walking around but I didn't find it interesting at all. It was like they were trying to convince you ghosts exist and they left me feeling like even more of a skeptic.
