Episode One: West Virginia State Penitentiary
A brief History of Moundsville, from the Encyclopedia Britannica:
city, seat (1835)
of Marshall county, northwestern West Virginia, U.S. It
lies along the Ohio River, just south of Wheeling. The
original settlement, known in 1771 as Grave Creek for a
large Indian burial mound (now within city limits), was
renamed Elizabethtown in 1798. Mound City was established
nearby in 1831, and the two communities were consolidated
as Moundsville in 1865. The city is in a rich coal-mining
area and has varied industries, including one of the
largest handmade-glass factories in America. The city is
also the site of a state penitentiary. Grave Creek Mound,
one of the nation's largest conical Indian mounds, is 69
feet (21 m) high, 50 feet (15 m) across the top, and 900
feet (275 m) in circumference. Numerous relics dating
from 800 BC have been recovered from two burial chambers
in excavations begun in 1838. Inc. city, 1911. Pop. (1991
