FORT MADISON, Ia. (WGEM) -

After a big turnout in May, the historic Iowa State Prison will have additional tours this fall. 

On October 7-8 , the public can check out the facility that was built back in 1839.

The prison is trying to raise $150,000-200,000 for a necessary report that will allow the Department of Corrections to hand over the property to a private sector or nonprofit for further development. 

It will cost $15 dollars for adults and children over the age of 12.

Children under 12 are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the local food pantry. 

Tickets are available online, CLICK HERE to sign up. 

There is limited ticketing offered for each designated time. 

There will be no refunds and the tour will occur rain or shine. Guests are asked to plan accordingly.

There will also be souvenirs available for purchase online as well as the day of the event.

You can ask direct questions to ispinfo@iowa.gov or by calling 319-376-4842.
