The former York County Prison in York, PA endured its fair share of controversy from the time it was built in 1906 till it closed for good in 1979. Rumors of overcrowding with multiple prisoners being stuffed into padded cells, racial segregation, and claims of road kill being added to the prisoners’ diets circulated through its 71 years of operation.

Thanks for watching!
