During the Invasion of Gilneas, the Forsaken used the prison as an abomination facility. Meat and abomination parts were scattered across the courtyard and work tables had been put in place. A gargantum flesh beast had been created there, although it was destroyed during the Battle for Gilneas City.
Later during the Alliance-Horde War, the Blackhowl regiment under Lord Hiram Creed held the area, although Creed was in fact a black dragon in disguise, and his soldiers had drank his blood. Creed was eventually assassinated, and while the fate of the Blackhowl was uncertain, the prison was abandonned along with the rest of the city on Lord Crowley's orders.
A guillotine could be found in the center of the courtyard, where many public executions were held.
