Haunted Jail for Sale

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.
