The Inside Of This Abandoned Prison In Tennessee Is Disturbingly Incredible

Tucked back in the hills of West Nashville, there stands a structure of architectural beauty that exudes an atmosphere of utter creepiness. The Tennessee State Penitentiary is owned by the state and closed to the public because its years of loneliness (closed since 1992, to be exact) has left it crumbling and decrepit. Lucky for you? We’re offering you a quick peek inside the stone walls for a Tennessee tour that simply can’t be beat.
