Historic Brushy Mtn State Pen
Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary was the last place you wanted to be sent to. Most commonly known as the “End of the Line,” Brushy was a maximum-security prison that held murderers, robbers, rapists, and evil men who committed heartless crimes.
Tours are self-guided and former prison guards will be nearby to answer any questions or share a brief story. There are more than 30 stations, each containing the story of what happened in that particular spot. Some will talk of violent acts, killings. Others about the moments family members came to visit. And still others will give you a glimpse inside the troubled minds of the hardened criminals that served time at Brushy.
