Greetings

Hello, I just got on LJ here and joined the community... perhaps the best method of introduction is by way of photograph. From a large industrial site in Columbus, Ohio...


 

Chamberlain Hotel - Fort Monroe, Virginia

I just found this community the other day from someone mentioning it over on urban_decay, where I posted some pictures of an abandoned hotel a few weeks ago. Figured I'd crosspost the entry over here.

On the grounds of Fort Monroe sits the historic Chamberlain Hotel, which was originally built in the late 1800s or early 1900s, burned to the ground in 1920, and was rebuilt in 1926 (early photos here and here). It was closed and apparently abandoned a few years ago, although I just recently heard they are going to turn it into a veteran's hospital.
