Jean Lafitte Hotel (smell the history)

Ghost and I found this baby in good ol' galveston. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.(Fact) so we decided since it was abandoned and gutted; wed get in. and by get in i mean wait for the couple walking ther dog in the alley by the fences wed need to climb.. to move and for the guy in the storage place in the photos across from it to go away...
very empty but with a few surprises.the placed reeked of dead pigeons...which it seems the hobos eat.. they were all headless.

yeah we have seen the dead pigeons but never one with the head removed. And at the room on the roof there was literally a foot high pile of pigeon shit along the walls.

theres alot of traffic right now from construction but they really dont care seeing as they saw us, but other than that just watch out for the numerous dog walkers that use the alleys.
