The Idaho Territorial prison was completed in 1870 and accepted first prisoners in 1872. It was operated by the federal government until Idaho gained statehood in 1890. The penitentiary remained open until December, 1973.
I know this blog entry was a big on the lengthy side, but I enjoyed learning about the facility and trying to imagine the conditions "back in the day". Hopefully, I'll never have first-hand knowledge of such a facility, however.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
