Leavenworth Things to Do: 14 reviews and 38 photos
This was built over a period of 25 years, but labor from the military prison at Ft. Leavenworth. Completion was in 1903, and it looks still ornate at the main entry area. There are today 2300 prisoners here.
The old military Discipline barracks from 1921 is now closed, and repair work on the grounds inside, as well as a restaurant are on the premises. Surrounding this old style prison was a ring of walls and 41 feet high. A lot is now torn down, but some 10 buildings remain for use today.
