astern State Penitentiary, the Philadelphia, Pa., landmark, an early Quaker prison dating back to the early 1800s, is a popular tourist destination getting ready for one of its biggest events of the year, Terror Behind the Walls. The prison, which offers year-round tours in the city's Fairmount section, turns into one of the most infamous haunted sites in the country just in time for Halloween.

“Our merchandise operations are fairly unique in that we do not have a standalone gift shop,” explained Eastern State’s Merchandise Manager Julia Jordan. “We do all ticketing, admissions, audio distribution and merchandise sales in a room that is 22 by 22 feet.”
