"The Walls" Missouri State Penitentiary 7.2.2005

Missouri State Penitentiary at Jefferson City, recently closed. This parking lot was once the "yard." They knocked a gaping hole in the wall for car access (to the left). The prisoners called this prison "The Walls." The prison itself is off limits. They have a small security crew guarding the whole place. They tailed me when I was taking these pictures. The weight room and recreation area are visible. The cell blocks on the hill once housed the prisoners. Also, here's a link about that prison too...
