Welcome to the End of the Line.

Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary was the last place you wanted to be sent to. Known as the “End of the Line,” Brushy was a maximum-security prison that held murderers, robbers, rapists, and evil men who committed heartless crimes with little remorse.

Today, it's open to the public for tours and is home to End of the Line Moonshine, the only moonshine legally distilled at a prison.
