Washington State Penitentiary
Washington State Penitentiary (also called the Walla Walla State Penitentiary) is a Washington State Department of Corrections men's prison located in Walla Walla, Washington. With an operating capacity of 2200, it is the second largest prison in the state (after Coyote Ridge Corrections Center) and is surrounded by wheat fields.
It is the site of Washington State's death row and where executions are carried out. Methods for execution are lethal injection and hanging.
It is located at 1313 N. 13th Avenue and is commonly known as "the Walls" among inmates of the Washington Department of Corrections. The penitentiary is sometimes known as Concrete Mama, from a book with the same title, by Ethan Hoffman and John McCoy.
The penitentiary was the subject of the song "Walla Walla" by American punk rock band The Offspring.
