We had some time to kill, so we visited the prison. Unfortunately we missed the tour, which I am sure would have added to our visit. It's only $5 for admission. The surrounding property is interesting too.

Parked at the truckstop and walked over. The prison has been very well remodeled and is full of historacle stories. Admission was $5 but is worth $20.

A very interesting and informative tour. The tour is self guided so you can spend as much time as you like. Reasonable rates and friendly people working there. Only takes an hour or so!
