This mansion was the home of a local noble family that built it in the end of the XVIII Century, the house was renovated around the time of the First World War and is now abandoned for around 20 years. There where some homeless people living in a section of the house some time ago but their gone now.
I could not find more information on the property but i plan to come back for a more complete exploration and to take more Photos.
This is the Front Facade, there is coat of Arms but i could'nt reach closer to this Facade.
There was a beautiful chapell inside the House but both the cealing and the floor are collapsing.
Some of the furniture is still on the house along with multiple photos and documents.
In the back we can see the real size of the house.
It as a wonderfull view of the city and it's river.
It as wonderfull rooms with carved fireplaces but i didnt had the time to explore the entire house.
Some photos and paintings and books in the Main Bedroom.
I will come back to take better photos and will publish them in a new topic.
This was day one of our tour de la derp..
Fascinating place and many rooms full of allsorts including the basement level with the bits everyone wants to see..
Visited with sx-riffraff ,Crazy fool and spaceinvader who was having 40 winks back atthe car
The horror labs is situated in a now mainly converted area so making access not as straightforward as youd like ,but access was gained none the less
The light in here as many of you know or have gathered isnt great due to the small window at end of the room so its a bitch to get right
Thanks for looking and no doubt i'll have a few more up during the day
this house always gave me the creeps as i drove by..then i noticed it was abadoned...I asked around and found out A Mrs Coffee live there..known as the town meanie..she had a hard life..her only son was killed in a car accident..her husband committed sucide..she had a daughter but noone knew anything about her...
The basement held the sad reminders..a buys and girls bike for children long gone...
the old lady had started hoarding...
the house was unlivable who knows how she got around
books were everywhere
several rooms were so pack all i could do was poke my camera in the door
that painting came home with me..
this was the master bedroom..it was impassable
i think the old lady slept in the bathtub
now to the really creepy room...judging by the art it looks like late 60s early 70's
wow weaird as hell..seems the daught noone knew about left as a young child or died with the brother in the same accident...because her bed room is largly unchanged since the 1970s
A very strange room
the kitchen was the only toom in the hoiuse that seemed normal
it was once a nice house..
i watched as workers picked over the house..i saw them smiling with arm fulls of stuff they decided to keep...i went in a few more times to find it almost completely stripped...i found dolls in unopened boxes..it was near chirstmas time so i took them and out them in the donation boxes for kids..before the other scavangers could grab them..they tore the house down..and quickly built another who sold quickly a new familt now lives on this spot....
I caught several voices thought my walkthough gost of this haunted doll house...makes me wonder if the new house is haunted too...
Not a lot about this place, I believe the bowling part shut down in 2009 and then the crystal maze part shut down in 2010. Oakwood own this place and have no plans for it besides letting it rot away. Whoever is trying to look after this place is attempting to keep people out. Heard about this place from a different site, easy to find, such a pain in the arse to get into as there's a very tight gap to try and squeeze through..
Thee maze is bigger than first thought, only uploaded a few pictures of that.
I first visited this former mental hospital back in June 2012 and alot has changed since that time ...some good some bad. This hospital started it's life in the 1920's and closed in 1994. At it's largest capacity it had 5,818 patients. Like many other state hospitals in the U.S it had it's own farm , laundry, bakery, refrigeration plants etc and various other buildings were built in later years such as a chapel and larger separate hospital built in 1966 for infirm patients which had, an operating room, laboratory, diagnostic equipment, clinics, medical library and mortuary. When I first visited here it was overgrown with poison ivy, tall grass....just unkempt and relatively easy as no one seemed to be watching it. There were plans to convert it to senior housing but that never happened and in 2013/2014 a group bought it to convert it into a college. I had planned to visit about that time when a friend who visited said they'd already taken out the morgue contents of the larger building. He also said they'd oddly started fixing up the auditorium but other things left untouched. He also discovered had started doing illegal abatement and word got out and they were shut down. It still sits partially abated which gives a new look to what I'd seen before but it also took away some of the charm. I of course wanted to see the big morgue when I went back...whenever that was I wasn't sure. Well last summer I was able to get back and the place is much trickier to do since there's a damn security guy 24/7 who seems to make usual rounds. All the doors have been screwed shut with the exception of a few....of course way out in the wide open. We got there very early in the morning so I took a few night shots. I might add the old morgue thankfully is still there in the older hospital building although all the doors have been taken. I would like to add that this place is sheer hell due to the tunnels which I didn't need to use in 2012 (since we were able to freely walk around) and is most known because of these horrific tunnels LOL. You basically are crouched in some while going down or up very steeply (depending on how you enter the campus) and are narrow as well as filled with the white crap (most likely asbestos) from the pipes that have fallen on the floor. I did not enjoy them at all and we actually left earlier than I wanted because we were both exhausted from carrying the heavy backpacks and navigating the tunnels trying to find a new way out so we didn't go back up the tunnels. I plan to go back though and get pics of things we missed. So here are some pics from my early visit which are crap. I can't re-edit them due to losing them via the cat who knocked the external HD to the floor a couple years ago. I was not a good photographer of buildings back then as I came from nature so this "architecture" was a whole new game for me. I struggled a bit with composition and lighting.....and used a fisheye at times Unfortunately I don't have the same pics of old trip of auditorium to compare with how it is now. I never edited and uploaded the old ones Forgot to add I stopped by in the winter last year to take a few exteriors hence the snow pics
