Hey there this is my first post tho I've lurked for a while I finally decided to just make an account and jump in to making some new friends since none of mine are willing to trespass.
Anyways I discovered this location while I stopped in Chattanooga to visit a friend before hitting Atlanta for the weekend. I met up with him for breakfast and we ended up walking around Chattanooga's historical district and seeing some dope churches from the 1880's.
After we got some cool shots I drive him back to where he parked and he started looking at some building that had boards on the windows and was talking about how he wondered what it was. I got excited and started walking around it seeing if I could find a POE and lucky i did. When we got in we found out we were in the basement of what seemed to be an old hotel but as we started exploring we found multiple pianos, bibles, a gym/theater, tons of dorm rooms and even a swimming pool. it was really cool.
I'm fairly new to this so this was my first place seeing that actually had lead paint peeling from the walls. I'll post some pictures below.
After I got home from atlanta I started doing some research and it turned out to be a place that I would have never guessed even existed in the 1900s.
Sorry if the quality is bad. These were all taken off a galaxy S8. I didn't snag my DSLR before we went in since we were in the middle of saying goodbye to each other. Sorry that some of them are orientated wrong, i'm not too sure how to fix that.
