Best Way to be Scared Straight

Old Idaho Penitentiary

Editors' Picks

If you grew up in the Idaho public education system, you were undoubtedly bused out to the Old Penitentiary for a field trip. Nothing like showing a third-grader the execution chamber and where a bunch of guys were stabbed in the yard. Take it from one BW staffer, it's a great way to scare the manners back in your kids, all in the name of education. Gather up the kiddies and show them where they'll end up if they don't eat their peas.
