Attica Correctional Facility star
Attica Correctional Facility was built in New York State in 1931 and has quite a storied history.

Bang Kwang Central Prison star
Bang Kwang Central prison is one of the harshest prisons in the world. Located in Bangkok, Thailand it lives up to its nickname Big Tiger because it "prowls and eats".

Camp Sumter, or as it is known today as Andersonville prison, was one of the worst atrocities of the Civil War. By the end of the Civil War, the 10,000 man prison held 45,000 Union prisoners.

Folsom prison has a bloody and violent history and is the second oldest prison in California but the first prison in the world to have electricity.

Halden Prison star
Halden prison in Norway is known as the most humane prison in the world. Read my article to find out why.

Hanoi Hilton star
The Hoa Lo prison in North Viet Nam was known as the Hanoi Hilton by the American POW's there during the Viet Nam war. Don't let the name fool you though. It was far from a comfortable room at the famous hotel chain.
