prison , abandoned / shut down Also once known as the Copeland Prison, or Jerome Road Prison, this site was opened in 1952, after the site was deeded by Barron Collier to the State of Florida. It was no longer used by the Florida Department of Transportation, and has been left abandoned since 2002.
Rick , who is a friend of mine, told me about this abandoned prison down in the Everglades and after he checked it out and posted his pictures, I just had to see it for myself. So I dragged my husband down there yesterday and took some shots. I am one of ‘those people’ who believes in ghosts. I don’t want to SEE them or hear them, but I believe. Sometimes I do get a ‘feeling’ about a place, and believe it or not this place didn’t scare me. What DID scare the heck out of me was hearing a snake rustle through some grass a few yards away from me.
