You Don't Want To End Up In Sing Sing
When my children were little, I'd sometimes encourage them to behave by saying, "You better obey.  You don't want to end up in Sing Sing, do you?"

Well, this isn't Sing Sing, but it is the Old Idaho Penitentiary that is now open to the public.  Built in 1870, this penitentiary, which operated for 101 years, is one of only four territorial prisons open to the public today!

Impressive are its somber sandstone block walls, buildings, and guard towers. As one tours its many buildings, such as the hospital, dining hall, cell blocks, shirt factory building, and so forth, the message rings loud and clear to make good choices in life enabling one to have a clean conscience and to experience freedom every day of one's life!
