Eastern State Grant

Eastern State Penitentiary recently received a $500,000 state grant to go towards preservation efforts and structural improvements. The site, which once housed Al Capone back in the day, is one of the regions top attractions, especially this time of year when it's transformed into everyone's favorite haunted prison for Terror Behind the Walls.
