In October of 2014, members of the Griffon Yearbook attended the College Media Association’s fall conference in Philadelphia. Between learning sessions and team building exercises, we ventured to Eastern State Penitentiary.
Throughout the tour we took, we learned about one the the first penitentiaries in the world. Eastern State used religious beliefs and solitary confinement to enforce order among inmates like Al Capone.
Eastern State is considered one of the most haunted buildings in the world.
