Jefferson City: Missouri State Penitentiary Ghost Tours
We certainly can't call a prison that opened in 1836 new, but the ghost tours that started here last year have pushed the interest in this creepy complex to a stratospheric level.
In November, the SyFy channel's Ghost Hunters aired its paranormal trek through what was once was the world's largest prison, luring even more curious travelers eager to hear former wardens share their horror stories. Admission charged (866/998-6998; missouripentours.com).
