Abandoned Places – Alabama Roads (Part 1) – Aug 08

Off the beaten track

While driving home from Atlanta and DragonCon back in August, we took a slightly off the beaten path and found some interesting places. The first of the sites we found was this complex near Oxford, AL. Oxford was a community on the outskirts of Fort McClellan and suffered when the base was closed down. I wish I could make a clear assessment of what this building had been used for, because of the weird assortment of items rusting/rotting in the Alabama dirt.

Henryton Sanitarium, MD

The town of Henryton was a small town neighboring Ellicot City and Sykesville, and featured an immense 4-winged hospital in which African Americans infected with  tuberculosis were sent to parish. Once the vaccine for TB was created, the hospital was used to house and treat children with mental/learning disabilities. The town was evacuated in 1985 due to asbestos.

I've been here twice now, and this town is AWESOME. there is definitely some paranormal activity occuring here -- the constant feeling of  being watched/followed, objects moving on their own, and voices.
