  • Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville

    I was Incarcerated in the Huntsville Walls unit in 2018, the prison has an eerie feeling as soon as you enter. I was in a cell level to the recreation yard, the first night I spent there I heard someone walking but there was nobody there, in the middle of the night I felt someone tap on my shoulder and I looked up and I expected to see a guard telling me it was time for chow or something but there was no one there. I was on edge from there and didn't sleep during the night.

  • Walls unit is NOT abandoned. I did more than a year there.

    The prison that has been abandoned since the 1950s is the old Eastham prison, which sits near the present Eastham penitentiary, known as the "House of Pain". Old Eastham was where Clyde Barrow was incarcerated, & was where his gang shot their way in to rescue Clyde. Huntsville prison is very active, home to about 1500 assigned residents, & is the location of the television & radio shop for the entire system, along with the machine shop & bus & vehicle maintenance & the execution chamber. The reason I would not recommend this haunt is because to visit you must either be incarcerated there or work there, plus a few exceptions.
