USA Oculus House May 2016

Recommended Posts

OK here is where things began to get a little surprising....

 

Following on from the awful 'Grand Hotel Disappointment' we headed off a short distance down the road to another town to attempt a sanatorium we had heard about. We saw the access but it required a fair old climb that neither of us were feeling up to knowing that the caretaker was living in a house across the street. So we walked back to the car and thought hang on we saw a curious looking house not far up the road so we may as well have a look, in for a penny and all that. Poking around the outside we found a way in so without a second look dived inside before the neighbours spotted us. And all I can say is wow. Ascending the stairs and actually seeing what it looked like inside was a heart-in-mouth moment. The rest of the house was just as weird too, with a load of African sculptures in one room and a massive window looking out onto the street in another.

 

It's a shame that when this particular building was converted into a house they ruined the aspect by adding an extra floor in, you will see what I mean.

 

These were all taken with no tripod as it was only ever intended as a scouting mission so the photos are a bit meh.

      The abandoned pool at Detwiler Park. It was opened in 1970, closed in 2009 after thieves broke in and stole water pumps and other plumbing.

      This is my first post on here, and these were taken with a cell camera, but I found this site interesting. This is a former control site for a Nike Missile Base that was part of a defense ring around a major city during the Cold War. The location where the missiles were stored/lauched in a few miles away and in use.  Eventually this was used as a State National Guard Unit until abandoned around 1996. The night photos are of 2nd base in this region which is partially used
