New Mexico State Penitentiary (Old Main)

Santa Fe, NM

If there was ever a haunted prison in the United States, the New Mexico State Penitentiary has the potential to be a hotbed of supernatural activity for obvious reasons. Violence, death and the unfinished stories of the inmates that were killed make for a location that is believed by many to be the most haunted site in the land of enchantment.
