In this podcast we talk about our trip to Brushy Mountain. A state prison in Petros, TN in operation from 1896 to 2009. It was started as a convict driven labor force with the inmates working in the mines digging for coal. A lot of cruel punishment was frequent here a long with many deaths from murder and disease. It is said to be very haunted but no ghosts wanted to show their faces while we were there. The most notable prisoner at the prison was James Earl Ray, the murderer of Martin Luther King Jr. Today the prison functions as a tourist attraction, restaurant, concert venue, and moonshine distillery.
