I am totally fascinated with abandoned places like hospitals and stuff that were shut down a long time ago. For example,






This is was a place here in MD until some jackasses torched it. Very creepy, very dark, but very awesome.

Know of any places by you?

No, but I would love to find some abandoned "haunted" place and adventure through it and do some paranormal activity studies in it.

There's a closed down hospital about 15 minutes from where I live, and I've heard stories from friends who live near it that it's haunted. It's been closed for years but supposedly they haven't taken out any of the furnishings except for the medical instruments and lighting. All the desks and doors and such are still intact, and they said it's really creepy at night and the fact that everything is still there makes it even scarier.

those look like they could be really scary "when you see it" pictures.

anyone ever watch ghost adventures? they go through places like this, but the main host guy is a douchebag.

Is that the Glenn Dale hospital? Lol. I lived in Maryland for a while, but never had the chance to check it out. BUT there is an abandoned military hospital near where I'm living now, along with a motel and a good few other buildings. It's pretty awesome going in there sometimes.

No the original part of Rosewood. Glenn Dale is too hot with security now. I've heard they actually have a security station set up in front of the property and make patrol rounds all day and night. I've also heard they use K9 units but idk about that one

I don't want to admit this to anyone lol, but I spend my weekends checking out empty or old places. I use Google maps looking for places and check old OS maps and try and find odd/strange/empty structures. There's even a few forums dedicated to it.

Tomorrow I'm checking out this place ;

I didn't realize they stepped it up so much with security. They did something like that with the hospital here for a while, when they realized people started going in there almost every night. They put locks on all the doors. But, of course, they didn't see the gigantic open window 5 feet away from one of the newly locked doors

Where you are, is there security at these places? because here, they seriously crack down on you if they catch you snooping around.

btw i sent you a friend request.

Whereabouts is that?

I always fancied going down to the Botanic Gardens station but I heard it's being turned into a nightclub or something along those lines.

Funny you mention that. There is a "haunted" house supposedly on the beach and I was there tonight with some friends. We heard doors upstairs closing and opening and people whispering. When we left, lights on the 2nd story turned on.

There's also a few places downtown too.
#21
I stopped by Henryton State in Carroll county to scope out how to get in, and i stopped by an old pig sty to look around and some guy pulled up. I was crappin myself thinkin he was security because the sty is sort of close to the hospital and it turns out he was just parking to go in the hospital and get copper! before then he asked if i had any weed. lol

I have a few backup plans to get into places. My friend who I go with is an electrical engineer for the Council (the people who maintain most buildings in the city), so drive in the official work vans and wearing the official uniforms. 2 years back we got past the security barrier to take pictures of a building that was coming down in 5 minutes and we got to watch it with the official demo people, closer than the public

If that fails, phone up the people who own the place. Seriously, 90% of the time they'll happily let you in with a key. Just say you're an urban explorer/photographer.



Here's the picture of that building btw.

If anyone else shares the hobby, post some pics!

I might post some more tomorrow

Look up Weston (sp?) state hospital. It's in West Virginia so depending on what part of Md you're from then it may be a nice road trip for you. It's currently being renovated but they still do ghost and regular tours in the Summer.

Love this kinda thing, especially the kind of photography opportunities that these places provide







Also in MD, not taken by me. And as potentially dangerous as this place is, I've always wanted to go and explore it. Opacity.us is really cool for this kind of thing.

Glenn Dale, the old TB sanitarium. But there are cops on the premises at pretty much all times.

My city (Victoria, BC) has an apparent network of tunnels under downtown. Some of these were for opium smuggling at the turn of the century, and some say they make out a pentagram, given the large satanic nature of the city. It's difficult to find any hard evidence about it.

If any Victorians are reading, there's apparently boarded-up routes under The Patch and near the Budget car rental place. There's also that old building near the Johnson street bridge that apparently connects to a lot of tunnels, or so meth heads will tell you. Ross Bay cemetery apparently has sepulchers that have crazy tunnels, but that could be something out of Michell Remembers. I dunno, it sounds awesome, but I figure most of it is urban legend.

My town has a lot of tunnels underneath it (who the hell knows why...) and one of the buildings downtown had an entrance to it (one of the last few) until it was sealed off by brick/mortar.

A town over there's an abandom asylum/hospital that goes underground. terrible shit happened there. I'm not so sure about the security, but I doubt i'd go anyway.

The Ghost Town Tahawus or Adirondac

Tahawus

Not an old asylum or the like, but just an old town that was shut down...??? Don't know when. In the Adirondacks of NY, actually at the alternate trail to Mt.Marcy.
I took all of these pics last spring IIRC. I went with a couple friends and a forest ranger gave us a brief rundown on the history, function, etc. If you google "Tahawus" you can find a bunch of info on the town itself. But here's the album anyway, some pics of old houses and the blast furnace.
