A Terrifying Tour Of This Haunted Prison Near Nashville Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

This scary story revolves completely around a castle-esque prison, abandoned, clinging to the western edge of Nashville, Tennessee. It’s the Tennessee State Prison. Crumbling since its closure in 1992, the spot was most famously used for exterior shots in, “The Green Mile,” a movie of Tom Hanks fame. It’s an eerie spot that instigates wonder amongst Nashvillians, and a bit of morbid curiosity.
