Just some random abandonded places....

Been out of the game for a bit because of life... Went out on a beautiful fall day for a drive and to hit up a couple spots I've been meaning to check out. One is a Dam (Maybe a God) that they built less than half-way and because this is Oregon and we know that fish have feelings the notched it. I guess at a time you could drive and park but the man had it locked off so I had to go covert ops which lasted till the damn cows saw me. Luckily the vile beasts where peaceful and grazing so nobody had to get hurt.

On the way up and then stopped on the way back found an Abandoned School it was was the bees knees. Loved it.

Also stopped at an Abandoned Hotel built in 1915. It had CCTV cameras on it because they are trying to sale it. Which is good because now I can legally get inside when I call because "I am interested in buying it".

Anywho felt good to be out exploring if the days stay nice like this I have another really big place I want to check out. I just need permission because it's being converted into a grow site so is active now but still has some really cool shots...

Totally agree, I wouldn't put that past some morons. I have always been like respect the place ; take only pictures, leave only footprints. But some people are hell bent on destroying and burning down everything. Case in point the idiots that burnt down the Gorge this summer.

Interesting! The larger building is very intriguing, did you manage to get a look inside?

I didn't the larger building is an old hotel from the early 1900s. It has CCTV Cameras and I'm sure alarms on it. It is on the market So I am going to try to call and look at it just to get a peak inside. May just call and say honestly curiosity got the best of me and I must see inside.

Nice photos! I'm sure if you phrased the conversation as though you were "documenting the building" to preserve its historical value online, they might consider it. I've had some luck with asking owners! Good luck getting a peek inside, the playground is CREEPY. <3

Thanks for sharing. Southern Oregon is where my dad lives, so I'm up there pretty frequently. Are you in Grants Pass, Medford, Roseburg?

Anyways, below are some images of the hotel in question's interior. President Herbert Hoover stayed here.

Gorgeous site and killer images, tunnelbug.
Thanks for the peek




I won't take all that they hand me down, And make out I smile, though I wear a frown,
And I'm not gonna take it all lying down. 'Cause once I get started, I go to town,
'Cause I'm not like everybody else, I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else. I'm not like everybody else...

Thank you, mate. I don't post here much any more, but I'd love to connect with some Oregon / WA folk as I don't feel I've done quite enough shooting up there. Always new discoveries...

Great shots of this place TunnelBug. It's nice that you put some context on it too. Always cool when people do their research about a place.

AGREED, this is a really nice set. So jealous.

I love how the floors look so pristine (for an abandoned spot) and its been very preserved. Can't wait for more!

Thank you all - appreciate the community this site has helped foster, and I miss the good old days when we could go to these places without suspicious neighbors
