Abandoned School Hardly Explored, Pennsylvania

Been absent for a long time...buuuuut, I recently got into a 10 building complex that has not been touched for decades. The buildings are connected by tunnels, so once you get into one, the ball is in your court. The whole time I was afraid I was going to be caught by security guards that stay in one spot all day...needless to say, they must have been on break when I passed both of their stations.

Sadly, the property has been recently purchased from a company in L.A. Deffo going back before any renovation begins...I need to get into the metal shop and auditorium one last time!

Very nice find! Thanks for coming back to share it! I've always wondered what makes some walls more susceptible to paint peeling than others




yup

My theory is latex paint applied over old oil-based paint doesn't adhere so good. A couple winters and summers later and it's all peeling up

I know, I agree they are pretty bad. Given the location and "top secretness" I did not take my actual camera. My phone is pretty bad with photos....I can assure you I am a better photographer than that!

There were several rooms like this! That one was taken in the Head Master's House...very creepy place.

Better than the ones in my school! The dorms were also better than my current living situations

There used to be a pool there, but it was decked over...the original and replaced scoreboard/control pannel were there as well.
