The library here rivaled the best law library in the state!  Many of the inmates used it to get out!   ???

I am certain there were a number of shankings here.  Along with lost utensils!

Overcrowding was an almost constant concern, and the first of several additions to the penitentiary was completed in 1904, adding 32 cells to the west end of the original cell block.

The prison was equipped with several different means of disciplining inmates throughout its operation, including a dungeon, several variations of solitary confinement and a “punishment pole” to which men were handcuffed and whipped with rubber hoses.

The cornerstone of the prison was laid in 1888, but due to funding issues and Wyoming’s notorious weather, the doors wouldn’t open for thirteen years.

And as a resident, you will have a “nice big backyard to play in”.
