USA House of Vicodin 2015

Recommended Posts

I'm glad I had a chance to visit this place on numerous occasions but wished I'd done one last before it was demolished. When I first read about the plan to do so I figured it would not happen but sadly it did and very fast thanks to a turd of a governor. What an utter waste of a perfectly stable and in good condition except for some rooftops, building. :( As of today only the admin section stands and not for long while the state pilvers whatever they can get out of there to make money off of. These are from my visits over a few years

No I think that's just an American thing, asylums over here (UK) were often built using the echelon plan layout. I guess that's our equivalent

Ok....that's what I kinda figured :D
Great shots there Michelle and the location looks awesome.

Sad to hear much is gone but the name of the game.

Thanks for sharing :thumb

Thank you!! It was a neat place to go to but pretty empty for the most part. One side was modernized as it was used for awhile longer then the other side, the male side which was walled over in the 80's or so. A lot of politics were involved with this one and why it was torn down :(
Top notch pictures and location, it's a shame about the demolition!
Thank you very much!

Thank you very much as well! I appreciate all the kind comments :D. Yes the turd should be banished and he wants to run for president I believe. Ughhh...no way

It's an absolute travesty what happened to enable this place to be demolished, a massive loss for the country and it's heritage. I wish I had got to see it.

I've just noticed how you came about the name too, very clever!

Sorry you didn't get to see it :(. Yes it's a loss that's for sure. They saved the front columns for the preservation group but that's it :(. That's neat you figured out the name :D
That's an excellent set of images, what a place!! Shame to hear it got dozered:(
Thank you! Yes a total stupid move to say the least on the state :( Edited by peanutbutter_crackers

      It's been a while since I've posted anything. I though I would share something really cool, this is the Kenosha Theater. I have a thing for old movie palaces and I could not pass this up especially since I live pretty close to it. It technically isn't abandoned since a man owns it, but he dosen't have the money to fix it so it sits in it's abandoed state. I will also add that he does give tours to anyone. That's all I have to say so enjoy the decay.

      Hiya!

      I visited Salton City last year and it was one of the strangest, most haunting experiences I've had. It's not locked up- there's a tiny, tiny population still living there (!) but the majority is derelict, covered in graffiti and shows signs of being fled in a hurry (old cereal packets on shelves etc). It was a former luxury resort but was built on the side of a now-poisonous inland sea and is carpeted, creepily, with mummified dead fish.

      I've written the whole story on my website here: http://www.lifeoutthere.co.uk/2017/12/07/salton-sea-things-that-could-have-been/

      Here are some pictures!

      Another short report from me, this was my second Urbex excursion so I'm keeping them short to kinda test the waters a bit before I go all out and find bigger places (or at least more interesting ones) with better equipment. I couldn't find anything about the place online but from what I gathered someone was evicted and then burglars came and stripped the place. That's just what I got from the graffiti drawn on by someone who has never attended an English class, although there are a lot of those types around here XD. Anyway, enjoy the pictures!

      This would be my 2nd fav kirkbride of those that I've seen so far and I was obsessed with seeing it. My first visit however was not the best as it was 8­F when I first got in and maybe warmed up to 19 outside but felt much colder inside. It was too cold really to focus on taking photos, too cold to really take my hands out of my gloves but necessary. I dropped my 24-70 lens on the floor fumbling around with big ass gloves on trying to switch lenses, when I got home in the wee hours of the morning the next day  I was just carrying my camera (why it wasn't in the bag I don't know) and I dropped it in the driveway...with the same lens attached :(. I also lost 75 photos or so from that trip and found out later it was due to a faulty card reader when I was transferring them. So with all that I had to go back again and reshoot and one photo in particular I wanted to capture again was the sun streaming through the decorative risers on the stairway and onto the wall. Well neither of the times I went back was the sun out so I never was able to get that photo again. Last visit at least I had the newer camera as I sold the 7D a month prior AND it wasn't so freakn cold.
