    florida state prison

    by doug48 Updated Jan 12, 2008

    located 6 miles northwest of starke is the florida state prison. the florida state prison opened in 1961 and is actually a collection of several different prisons. the florida state prison houses 1,400 of florida's most dangerous inmates. florida state prison houses florida's death row where inmates await execution. from 1924 to 2000 death row inmates were executed in florida's electric chair known as "old sparky". since 2000 inmates are now executed by lethal injection. the infamous serial murderers, ted bundy, aileen wuornos, and danny rolling were executed at the florida state prison. obviously the prison is not open to the public but you can drive by it on SR16.
