Upper photo: Close-up view of original cellblock.
Lower photos:  Two views of Women's Prison, opened in 1858.  66 Women were moved from the attic of the Warden's house at the Men's Prison across the street to this new prison.  The Women's Prison was closed in 1932 and inmates were transported to the new state women's prison at Dwight, Illinois.

This building is currently in use by the Department of Human Services.

I know this thread is years old, but I just had to comment. I never paid any attention to that show and don't remember it ever airing and never watched one single second while it was on.

It wasn't until Nov. of last year that I began to watch the show on Hulu Plus and was instantly hooked. Each episode was full of suspense and I was on the edge of my seat through it all. I watched the entire series in a month! And while watching, I quickly developed a crush on Wentworth Miller (Michael Scofield). He is now the wallpaper on my phone. And even though I hate how the series ended, it's one of the best shows I've ever seen.

I loved that show. . . but can't remember how it ended . . . just remember being disappointed.    Maybe you could give me a short version in a private message, so we won't ruin it for others who haven't seen it?
