Abandoned Church in Oklahoma
< on 10/13/2023 5:21 AM >

Hey guys, this will be the first of many posts for me. I suppose a good place to start would be this church I've been meaning to go to for a while. I've done a tad of urban exploration in the past but never thought to take pictures to post. However, I've recently begun a college journey and have gained a new appreciation for communities as a whole. I've therefore decided to begin my journey of integration into this wonderful community online, and I hope this first post finds everyone well.


This first image is of the south-side entrance of the church. Just a bit to the east(by the disability ramp) there is an inscribed stone that is dated "1943," and the ramp closest in relation to the camera is the entrance I decided to enter through. Something you'll tend to notice throughout the images is that the building is extremely open, this worked to my advantage for both lighting and potential exit routes.

There's not much else to note about the potential entrances as a whole, every side of the building has a place to enter through; albeit some are more demanding than others. There are also virtually no hazards entering the building, a simple bush(which did have stickers) was all that stood between the outside and the inside.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This second image is of a room you can enter almost immediately past the south-side door. It appears to be the remnants of some sort of dining area, and there is seldom left besides chairs. On the left side of the picture you can see a furnace/stove of some kind, long since rusted out of service. Just between the window and the furnace, there is a doorway that leads to what used to be the kitchen. The smell was something directly out of hell itself, a mixture of human urine and rotting food hit me like a brick wall upon entering. Despite the respirator I was wearing(w/ p100 filters) I couldn't manage long within the room, leaving shortly after to explore other areas of the church.

Other notes about the room would be the unfortunate recent graffiti, although recent it seems like the not too many people know about it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This final image is of what appears to the remains of a basketball court/theater, and there is a whole lot to discuss about the image. For starters it is immediately accessible via the front door, the previously discussed kitchen is in the door just before the court. The court itself is in total disarray, completely stripped of any wooden floor or varnish of any kind, and yet there is still a hoop on the east side somehow. The south-side of the court has a small stage, presumably for services or shows of some kind(possibly Christmas time?) The north side of the court has the remains of bleachers of some kind, I didn't ascend the stairs but it appears that they were made of concrete.

The last thing I'll say before providing my exploration video is thank you! I'm extremely excited to become a part of this community and I hope everyone who sees this post has a fantastic day, and remember you're loved by lots of people.

I haven't been yet, but I've heard interesting things about the drains out that way.

Just went through the Brady tunnels the other day, Elm Creek Station and the acid tunnels are both fun ones, lots more to find!
