Known as "The Rock", what famous prison housed inmates such as Al Capone, and "Machine Gun" Kelly?
"The Rock", officially known as Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, was the country's first maximum-security prison. Located 1.25 miles off the coast of San Francisco, prison operators believed Alcatraz to be escape-proof and America's strongest prison. Notable inmates included Chicago mobster Al Capone, George "Machine Gun" Kelly, and Robert Stroud, the man known as the "Birdman of Alcatraz." Today, Alcatraz is a public museum and one of San Francisco's major tourist attractions, attracting some 1.5 million visitors annually.
