HAUNTED MICHIGAN: The Souls That Linger Within the Cells & Tunnels of Michigan State Prison

Michigan’s first prison was built in 1842, was the world’s largest walled prison, and housed over 2000 inmates. And the spirits of some of those inmates are said to be dwelling within the walls, rooms and underground tunnels.

The prison has an extensive history of riots, neglect, escapes, wrongful deaths, sickness, torture and cruelty…so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that there would be souls that linger within, seeking some sort of retribution, forgiveness…or even some kind of pardon.

People who have visited or investigated the old prison have seen apparitions, heard unearthly moans, ‘phantom’ screams, doors slamming, banging on pipes…and are certain they had been touched by some unseen presence.

Paranormal investigators have recorded voices pleading for help as well as screams and moans.

The photo gallery above shows an exploration of the underground tunnels in the old Michigan State Prison (called the “Jackson Armory” years later, now the “Armory Arts Village”).

I’ve been through those tunnels myself (which is a very claustrophobic experience) – and in the solitary confinement cells – and I can understand why there are those who believe the place haunted.

Very historical, very interesting, very recommended location for you to visit…even if you’re NOT a ghost hunter. If you’re curious about anything paranormal, this is a place you should visit. To get tour information, CLICK HERE.

You can always ask if you can arrange to conduct your own paranormal investigation…shivers down your back are guaranteed.
