Eastern State Penitentiary Tour & Dinner
5/4/17 - 5/4/17

You won't want to miss the chance to join others engaged in Correctional Ministry as we tour the first U.S. prison and enjoy dinner together.

Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers.

Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners.

Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone.

We will meet at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott at 1:30 pm, tour the prison at 2:30 pm, have dinner at Warmdaddy's, and return to the hotel by 8:00 pm.

The cost includes the tour, transportation, and dinner.
Capacity is limited to 70 individuals.

Location: Eastern State Penitentiary, 2027 Fairmont Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19130
