Today we’re checking out a prison that’s been abandoned for almost a decade. The buildings started their life as a mental hospital but were later converted into a corrections facility. Since the complex wasn’t originally designed to be a prison it was found to be inefficient and unsafe, and therefore shut down. Now join us as we venture inside to explore the building in it’s current state of decay. There’s a basement. We’ll do that later. Let’s go in here. Oh, cobwebs all over me. They even had outlines for all of the razors and stuff. That way, they know if one’s missing. Prison robes. So wait, in prison do they refer to like the guards, as lieutenants and sergeants? Or was this like a military type thing? Captain. I think they might just use that naming scheme for uh… the guards here. Sergeant Womble… These were for the vehicles. Handcuffs would be on the wall right there. And guns in here. In case of like a prison riot or something… It doesn’t really look like a chapel. Well, it’s a prison chapel. A lot of stuff left in here… An overhead projector, haven’t seen one of those in forever. Throwback, to elementary school. Looks pretty empty. So this was all like administrative offices in here. It’s probably where all the desks that are out in the chapel are from. Came from in here. These are all offices. Empty… What was that? I don’t know. A door… Probably air pressure. Yea. Curtains. Yea these are dorms over here now so- Let’s go down here. What were these for? Just seats? I don’t know. Just a gathering room? There’s an ironing board over there. Hmm? There’s an ironing board, over there. Don’t drop the soap. They use this system for organizing everything in here. Yea that way they know if something’s missing. Right, because then the prisoner could be using it as a weapon. If something’s missing. Elevator shaft is open over here. There’s the car up there. This is where the inmates would eat. Can’t move anything, everything’s bolted down. Yup Blood spill kit, did you see that before? Looks like this was a library… What do ya know? Here’s the elevator car. I do not wanna go inside that. I love this light coming in. Exploring places in the morning is always the best. I see more pigeons down there. Alright let’s go this way first. Look at this door. Heavier security. Look at the iron. There’s a window inside the wall. That’s a little weird. Yea… Window inside the wall. The light in here is so nice. A little courtyard out here. Damn, I guess we have to take the stairs. Sanctioned chemical pickup… Sanitation. Yea. That’s not- Where are ya? Oh there’s a bunch of them! Oh my god, those poor birds. They all just flew into the glass. Chemical storage rooms, they say. Yea, and there’s biohazard stuff. This is floor finish. And automated dishwasher liquid. You know what, I bet this used to be medical because of the sanitary tiles, and also this looks like an x-ray viewer. Yea. Pigeons have been staying in there. Alright so we’ve seen every floor except the basement, of this building. Let’s head down and check it out. Oh it’s wet. Great. It looks very wet. No, not that bad. Oh, a barbershop, another one. What? Another barbershop. No chairs or anything left in here though. Hoooiiiiiy… What’s up? The spider. It’s locked anyway. Another barbershop? How many are there in this prison? The spread of MRSA… Hm? The spread of MRSA. Oh yea. I’m positive that the building didn’t go that far, in this direction. Look how far it goes. It did not go that far down up top. Tunnels? So it might be like connected to the other buildings down here. This definitely looks like an inter-connection. Like a passageway between them. Okay this connects the buildings. Yea we’re like in the center of the courtyard probably. Let’s go in that room for a second. School area? There’s a lot of stuff left in here. Books, and more books. And more books! Is that what all these boxes are full of? Yep. This looks like a study room or something. Yo it goes down even more. Another staircase? It goes down too. Let’s see what else is here first though. This looks like a classroom. They would’ve had computers here I bet. No, I bet you it’s just like a reading room or something. Maybe. You know what’s something that I’ve noticed? I think this dark blue carpet was used in like staff only areas, so if you noticed that every single staff only area has this blue carpet, so that was probably like a signal to the prisoners that they’re not allowed to be anywhere with blue carpet. So yea it would just be staff back here, and they would have to get the books through this window. Yea even deeper. This place must’ve been built on a hill. Oh that goes right out to the front. We would be super exposed out there. Yea. There’s like workshop stuff in here. Oh… ID’s. What is it? ID’s. Oh yea. I guess we’re going down this side first. It’s nuts, it’s like melting. A pokeball? That side, is medical. Let’s do this side first though. Oh, pillows. These are more comfortable than the ones at the other prison. These are actually like soft, yea. Not stuffed with newspaper. Segregation… Isolation… Mental health observation. Oh yeah. Woah. Yea, isolation cells. These were like serious cells here. Holy shit. Solitary confinement? Yea you can see messages written in here. And in the metal too. They engraved stuff.
