Tour and Lunch at Brushy Mountain State Prison
Thursday, May 16, 2019
The stories live on at Brushy. The voices echo down “3 Walk.”
This will be an experience like no other. It will surprise you. Terrify you. Make you wonder what it would’ve been like to be locked up here for the rest of your life in the former maximum security prison that housed some of the most evil and dangerous criminals in the country.
Tours will be self-guided with former prison guards nearby to answer questions and share stories. Visit 14 stations and learn what happened in those particular spots. 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. Lunch will be served at The Warden’s Table located inside the prison.

Cost: $63 and includes your bus ride, tour and your lunch (vegetarian meals available upon request).
**Make sure to also bring a $1-$2 cash tip for the bus driver.
Bus pick-up: Bus leaves FiftyForward Donelson Station at 7:30 am
