  •  Interesting Features
    In ONE of the buildings: Several of the rooms contain very earlier computers dating back to the 1970's. Tons of maps, blueprints, and building plans for various Mass Development projects. A few really large safes.

    Update: January 2013

    Returned to this location cause it was one of the first places I ever really explored: I did not encounter any oddities (other than what looked like target practice dummies inside???) but the next day on the news I saw footage of Massachusetts National Guard Soldiers and Mass. State Police troopers practicing inside of these structures using live ammunition. BEWARE!

     History
    Built by the US Military as a series of offices/barracks, the complex contains several cafeterias, vaults, and storage facilities. Closed in 1994 when the US Military moved out of Fort Devens. One building also used to house the Mass Development offices up until a few years ago. Another building, being the old hospital, is less than 100 yards from the State Police Barracks. Other buildings, including a well secured church are also abandoned.
