If you know me, you know I'm down to check out haunted places, especially if they are in our state. One place I want to check out is the Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary. According to people this jail was the last stop for notorious inmates. One of their most famous prisoners was James Earl Ray. James' most notable escape was back in 1977.
The penitentiary is located near the Tennessee town of Petros and was in use from 1896 up until 2009.
