The North Walk will take you through the oldest part of the former West Virginia Penitentiary.  It is also known as the area with the most paranormal activity, a place where murders, violence and brutality were common everyday occurrences.  This was where the most dangerous inmates were housed, the maximum security area, North Hall; the inmates called it – The Alamo.

You will enter this part of the prison through the “Administration Building” and the “wheel” – these areas have been closed to the public for years and only opened for the Haunted House season.  The North Walk is NOT an attraction, but a flashlight tour of an area that was once considered one of the bloodiest institutions in the nation. 

There are no actors on the North Walk. It's just your group, your tour guide, a flashlight, and a few tales from the past. The areas that you will visit include: North Hall, the Boiler Room, and the North Wagon Gate. 

Where History meets Mystery…feel and sense the energy of the North Walk.

The North Walk is NOT wheelchair/stroller accessible. There are tight areas, staircases, and steps.

**If you are inebriated (drunk) you will NOT be permitted inside. You will be considered a safety hazard and a danger to yourself and our actors- YOU WILL WAIT FOR YOUR GROUP ELSEWHERE!!
