Meet The Alumni Reunion Of Eastern State Penitentiary

I know this is short notice. But, better late then never. Just saw this today in Philly:

May 17, 2010
Saturday: Alumni Reunion @ Eastern State Penitentiary

It might not come as much of a surprise to find out that former officers from Eastern State Penitentiary enjoy visiting the historic prison, and reminiscing about their time spent working there. But the fact that former inmates return to the prison to remember old times… that might seem a little odd. But it happens, and you’re invited to welcome them back this Saturday.

At 1:30pm on Saturday, May 22nd, alumni from the prison (workers and prisoners alike) will gather with the public for a talk, sharing memories about the towering prison in Fairmount.

According to Eastern State, “previous discussions have addressed work details, recreation, race relations and daily life for inmates and officers.” Come join in and ask some questions. The roundtable talk is free with admission.

  1. Awww too bad for me. I am going to do a write up on the history and haunts of the place and talking with them and hearing their experiences would have been perfect. I just live too far away to have made it anyway.....thanks for the info.
