Ohio State Reformatory: This prison experience rivals Alcatraz! It is so captivating, major movies have been filmed here. It resembles a castle. In fact, it’s the largest castle-like structure in the state and fifth largest in the country. It still holds the record for housing the world’s tallest free-standing steel cell block. It consists of 6 tiers, 12 ranges and 600 cells. And that’s just in the East Wing of the prison. If that isn’t arresting enough, this 19th Century structure has walls that talk. See for yourself in an overnight ghost hunt. For more information, click here.
