Prison guard sounds his siren and tells me, "State Property, get off now!" in Canon City, Colorado

After leaving the Gas Chamber, I decide to bicycle further around the prison for closer inspection. Unknowingly, I learned that this was still an active prison and guards are still watching in the old-looking towers still. Apparently, not the entire complex was handed over to the "Historical Society" for tourists to explore yet". I guess if prisoners were said to have built the prison with their own hands, they might be less likely to escape?
