The historic Carbon County Jail in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania purportedly boasts a number of spirits left behind from its time as a correctional institution and, for a mere $749,000 dollars, the site and its resident ghosts could be yours. The current owners of the location have reportedly decided to put the jail up for sale after spending the last two decades maintaining it as a museum and haunted attraction. Said by one owner to be home of "tons of ghosts," the jail is specifically associated with a number of coal miner hangings.
Their executions were the end result of a violent series of skirmishes between coal miners and owners in the region in the late 1870's that became so infamous that the incidents actually inspired a 1970's film starring Sean Connery. Over a century later, some historians now suspect that the men sentenced to die may have received unfair treatment at trial. And it is the spirits of those wrongly-convicted prisoners who are said to still linger in the jail.
