Ramage Paper Mill

December 22, 2020

The Ramage Paper Mill was a fairly typical paper mill on the shores of the Deerfield River in Monroe, MA. I had found it the typical way – scouring the internet and browsing satellite imagery. Being fairly far from home, I scouted it during a drive I took out here with a friend during the…

Packard Plant – Trip 5

June 15, 2020

Several of these pictures were never published on my old site, so I figured I might as well make this a new post that is not back dated to a time close to where the pictures were originally posted. Packard Plant Trip 4 produced some fairly unremarkable night shots before we retired to The Pyramid…

Northville Regional Psychiatric Hospital

April 23, 2020

The COVID crisis has given me some time to make progress on posting all of the pictures and locations from my days of exploring abandoned buildings. Getting all of the material online is something I really want to accomplish, but don’t make enough time to work on. For the most part, I backdate my posts…

Fore River Shipyard – 2011 – 2012

December 30, 2018

Fore River Shipyard began operations in 1883. In 1913, it was purchased by Bethlehem Steel. Its final owner, General Dynamics, purchased the yard in 1963 and eventually ceased operations in 1986. Most of the ships the yard worked on were Navy ships. My father actually worked here for a time doing some engineering work, so…

Horatio Q. DeSantis State School

November 14, 2010

As I write this in 2020, it has been such an incredibly long time since I have been to this place, or really done any serious exploring, that it feels ridiculous to give this place a fake name. It’s well known. However, it is the subject of a fair amount of hand wringing in the…

Polaroid Trips 7 – 11

November 4, 2010

At some point, bringing other people to see Polaroid and just going for fun started to become a reason to go, rather than just trying to photograph. On these trips, I visited the main office building. It was probably the most empty and least interesting building on campus. However, the windowed cafeteria sitting right along…

Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD)

June 27, 2010

I have visited NAWCAD three times now. Once was at night, but the two daytime trips were made in absolutely oppressive heat. The second trip’s hazards also included workers actively gathering scrap metal from the site as we shot. However, despite the blazing heat and difficult entrance, everything worked out pretty well, and I was…

Amsterdam, NY Warehouse

June 2, 2010

I don’t have a lot of information on this warehouse. I got a tip from a family friend that there were some abandonments in Amsterdam…that it was a one factory town and that factory had closed…and managed to confirm the info online. It seemed like a chill spot so we stopped here on our way…

Hotel Adler

May 12, 2010

This was the first stop on a whirlwind 4 day exploring trip with my friends Dave and Dan. I had obtained information on the hotel from someone I knew from exploring forums, and we took the long drive out here in one shot. I have to say, it was an excellent way to kick off…
