Tennessee State Penitentiary
The Tennessee State Penitentiary is closed to the public. Due to the conditions of the buildings, we do not allow inside access for tours, photos or paranormal activities.
If you are interested in exterior photos, check our website often and follow us on Facebook for future events. Public events held at this site are a great opportunity to get those great shots, take on a 5K, and also help us to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee.
At this time, there are no events scheduled.
