On Wednesday, May 22, 2019 we took a Day Ride to visit the museum at Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary. We got there by riding the Devil’s Triangle, a ride we’ve done several times before. If you are interested in that route see our posts HERE and HERE.
The irony of Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary is that such a scary place is located in such a beautiful mountainous region. And now that the prison has been turned into a museum and moonshine manufacturer- it allows those of us on the “outside” to get a glimpse into life behind bars. (1896 – 2009)
Our post today is primarily photos we shot during our day, but for a more detailed history- click HERE.
