Eastern State Penitentiary

"Let the avenue to this house be rendered difficult and gloomy by mountains and morasses. Let the doors be of iron, and let the grating, occasioned by opening and shutting them, be increased by an echo that shall deeply pierce the soul."
-- Dr. Benjamin Rush, Quaker reformer, 1787
