Old Boise Penitentiary

A fascinating window into the not-so-distant and none-too-glorious past of America's prison system, the Old Boise Penitentiary is probably the city's most popular historical site. Up until a riot forced its closure in 1973, the Old Pen is where Idaho's worst criminals came to serve their time, get shanked and wait for the gallows.
