Moundsville Ghost Hunt


West Virginia State Penitentiary operated from 1876 to 1995. During it's time of operation, it was frequently on the Top Ten Most Violent Correctional Facilities List. In total, thirty-six homicides took place in the prison. From 1899 to 1959, ninety-four men were executed at the prison. Hanging was the primary execution method. In 1931, a man was completely decapitated during his execution at the prison.
Beginning in 1951, electrocution became the means of execution. In total,

9 men were put to death by the electric chair, known as "Old Sparky". The death chair still sits in the prison.


In total, 998 men died within the prison's walls. The living still encounter those lost souls today. Shadow people have been seen & captured on film. Strange noises echo in the cell blocks. Unseen forces have attacked visitors. Unexplained voices are heard and captured throughout the prison - and a terrifying presence still lurks in The Sugar Shack...


Are you brave enough? Let's find out...
