The Arizona State Prison Complex located in Florence, Arizona, has provided a great deal of fascinating, and often morbid, artifacts to the Pinal County Historical Museum.
The museum displays 28 nooses used to execute 31 former Arizona Death Row inmates along with a photo and profile of each prisoner, a double execution chair, and a database of everyone ever put to death in the state.
Spokesperson H. Christine Reid says the many prison related exhibits are sobering, especially for visitors who have found relatives who died on Death Row in their extensive genealogy archives.
She says, People wonder whatever happened to a great uncle who they never heard from again, and the find out they ended up in prison. It solves a mystery for many families.
