    1. my mom took my brother and I here a few summers ago. It was pretty cool. i would have loved to see a ghost there but sadly i didn’t.

    2. I live in Yuma Arizona for two three maybe four years always went to the Territorial Prison not one time not one time did I ever see or hear any paranormal voices or activity I always felt at ease I did feel sorry for the prisoners that were help there I saw the writing on the wall the conditions that they had to live in or horrible but it is not hunted and for those of you who think it is it’s all in your head same thing goes for the Winchester Mansion unrealised thoughts
