The damnation of many an evil man, the salvation of a humble few. 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, evil men who committed heartless crimes with little remorse. Once you came here there was little chance you’d leave here. Prison sentences were 200 years or more.

Today, you can tour this historic landmark, visit the museum, eat a meal at The Warden's Table and purchased End of the Line Moonshine, distilled on site.

Our 2019 season opens April 1st.
