We venture out to our first abandoned motel. We couldn’t find out any information about it and we actually stumbled upon this place unintentionally. Join us as we travel inside and discover what this historical motel has to offer.

We venture out to another abandoned high school. This was the biggest high school as of now that we’ve explored. The auditorium, gymnasium, pool, workout room, and classrooms were all so beautiful and looked really nice (even though the whole school was vandalized). This school was a four-year high school (grades 9 – 12) that closed in 2014. It opened in 1926, and was named after an Indian who served as a United States general during the American Civil War. The facility had about 65 teachers. Sadly, the school was voted 4 – 2 to close, along with 5 other schools nearby. The building had over 2.8 million dollars in repairs and they just couldn’t afford fixing it. Join us as we travel inside and discover what this historical high school has to offer.

We venture out to an abandoned correctional center (Part 1 / 2). This was our first encounter to an abandoned correctional center and was insane (Took us almost 3 weeks to get the footage and photographs all figured out since the place was fairly large). This correctional center was used for a filming of a TV series and opened in 1858. This correctional center housed thousands of inmates and continuously peaked every year adding more and more. There was also a women’s prison that was added across the road from the main initial structures around 1896, but that closed in 1932 when a new prison nearby opened up. This prison was also quite slow to modernize. It had no running water and no working toilets in the cells in 1910. Sadly, the closure was cited in 2002 for budget cuts and obsolete and dangerous nature of the buildings. The staff and prisoners were all transferred to a different location.

We venture out to an abandoned high school. This is our second visit to a school and it was definitely enjoyable! We found so many places and plus it even had an auditorium in mint condition. This school closed in 2004, and since then it had graduated more than 75 classes of students. The school took seven years to build and was finally finished in 1928. The school set a new standard for the area’s public schools by featuring landscaped rolling hills, multiple gyms & pools, and even a man-made pond. Sadly, the school was in a low-population area and therefore enrollment declined too. Join us as we travel inside and discover what this historical high school has to offer.

We venture out to an abandoned power plant (Yes, we did already travel to this same power plant a while ago… but we decided it was time to go back and make one heck of a video with better content than our old explore). Originally opened in 1910, then purchased by another company 10 years later (1920). Producing heavy equipment such as crankshafts for the automobile and railroad industries. This power plant even had it’s own coal-fired power plant to supply energy to the plant because it was so big. Join us as we travel inside and discover what this historical power plant has to offer.

We venture out to an abandoned factory. We know in matter of fact that they did make screws and bolts (We originally thought they made clothes & tires, but we were getting ahead of ourselves). Opened in the Summer of 1912, the first 100 workers were employed inside. This factory was used during the hard times of war, and they managed to produce more than most companies could. Sadly, many of the workers were retained after V-J day (900 workers approximately). The spiraling downfall of the factory was caused due to the neighborhood’s poorness as the town has been struggling for ages. The factory was then bought by a non-profit organization in 2002. Their plans were to use the storage space as an area for donated clothes. Join us as we travel inside and discover what this historical factory has to offer.

We venture out to an abandoned high school along with an elementary school right next to it (Part 1 / 2). Opened in September of 1909, was initially developed to incorporate work, study, and play. It was originally a white only school, as black’s weren’t allowed and were instead transferred to different schools. Property tax caps, the city’s low tax collection rates, and significant depopulation have decimated the district’s finances, forcing the school board to make deep cuts in which caused the school to close in 2008.

We venture out to an abandoned asphalt plant. We couldn’t find a whole lot of information about it, as it was in a pretty disclosed location. We do know for sure it has been sitting there for quite a while. Join us as we travel inside and discover what this historical asphalt plant has to offer.
