Mental Hospital V2-This time with the chapel

Snow came and cancelled school so I got some friends and headed back to the hospital I did a few weeks ago. We got there late so couldn't do too much but it was still fun. We had 4 people, the most i've ever explored with, and 2 of them were basically first timers. It's cool to see their faces when they first walk in. It was cold and nasty but we survived. After rushing through the first building and discovering that they had locked up another building in the past week 2 of us decided to do the power plant and me 2 of us tried the chapel. The 2 that did the power plant were just too lazy to walk back up to the chapel and they really missed out. It was probably my favorite building on the property. The power plant turned out to suck too. Anyway, here are my pictures:

1. The stairs up to the guard tower from when part of it was a jail.


2. On the tower. The basketball court can be seen in the bottom left.


3. This place has some amazing textures. All these were taken the in first building that I did last time. You see new stuff every time you go.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8. In the utility/kitchen/administration/chapel building. This room was like 2.5 stories high.


9. Seconds after taking this one of my feet broke the flooring. It wasn't until then that I truly understood the state of disrepair that this building was in. In the back left corner of this room you can see where the bricks fell from the ceiling and the floor was severely warped.


10. In the 3rd story chapel.

Here's a shot by Tom Kirsch taken in 2007. I realized when I got back how similar our compositions were.

Note, I did not take that one. It's just for comparison. You can see the bricks that fell in the left of my shot and how much more the paint is chipping.

11.


12.


13. The organ was built in 1851 by Henry Erben, who I guess is a famous organ builder but I don't really know or care.

Here's another comparison shot by Tom from 2007.

Again, I didn't take that one.

14.


Thanks for looking!

You have a really good eye for composition. Keep it up.

Every once and a while there is some awkward vertical skew. (could fix post if you really wanted)

Thanks for sharing some great work!

Very good work; with both the write-up and the pics! Love the chapel and the hallway shots (as well as the peely paint). Looks like it was indeed worth the nasty weather, glad you got in and out safe...and without going through that floor! I had a similar situation happen to me while on an asylum explore, fortunately it also ended well.
Anyway, thanks for sharing, you really have a talent for this! 😃

Excellent follow-up to your first set, especially that beautiful chapel building. Once again, your textures are crisp AF.

very nice set, whatever happened to the apartment conversion this place was supposed to be undergoing?

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

As far as I know, the bigger buildings have been renovated including the one with the staircase.

The spiral staircase building is now a hotel and the building on the hill that was the jail is now apartments. One other building has a few businesses I think. Other than that it's mostly still abandoned but renovations are happening. One of the buildings that was unlocked before was now locked for renovations. Luckily we were still able to do the chapel. If you're near by and want to to it again then there's probably enough left to make it worth it but it depends on your situation.
