Touring Abandoned Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary in Tennessee

With perfect weather on tap, we headed up to the small town of Petros, Tennessee, to check out Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary. Closed down in 2009, the prison that once housed some of the most violent criminals in our country, including James Earl Ray, MLK Jr's assassin, has sat abandoned and is now a museum with tours. Find out more info on Brushy Mountain on their website.
