I took this picture today to meet The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge which is Door. The picture is of a door (or a gate perhaps?) in the wall around the old prison site in downtown Stillwater, Wisconsin. The prison was built as the Minnesota Territorial Prison in 1853. It was used until 1914. The site was abandoned and unused for decades. The last remaining building was destroyed by arsonists in 2002. I live in the apartment complex that today occupies the site.
Parts of the old prison wall remain. There are two doors in the south wall, one of which is shown in this picture.
I’ve used these doors in photos before. They are the backdrop for the two photos here that I used last year in a Halloween slide show.
