Eastern State Penitentiary In 1787, a group of well-known and powerful Philadelphians convened in the home of Benjamin Franklin. It took the society more than thirty years to convince the commonwealth of Pennsylvania to build the kind of prison it suggested; a revolutionary new building on farmland outside Philadelphia. This massive new structure, opened in 1829, became one of the most expensive American buildings of its day and soon the most famous prison in the world. The early system was strict. To prevent distraction, knowledge of the building, and even mild interaction with guards, inmates were hooded whenever they were outside their cells. But the proponents of the system believed strongly that the criminals, exposed, in silence, to thoughts of their behavior and the ugliness of their crimes, would become genuinely penitent. Thus the new word, Penitentiary.
