Sunday Afternoon Classes

Sunday Afternoon Classes - Holley High School

After my latest trip to WNY, on the way back a brave convoy of cars tracked along Rt. 31 out of the city, our first stop was Holley, NY. More specifically the abandoned High School sitting in the middle of town.

Our clandestine efforts were rewarded with a wonderful exploration of this 1930s era high school with no problems with any local residents or the local cops (which would've been all sorts of bad).

The High School was built in the 1930s, and closed in the 1980s. In addition to being a secondary school the basement housed a private company called Liftect, and a daycare center was also located on the premise.

Super-Duper Mart

This supermarket has been closed since...around 1993 I think?
The entire place was probably the most toxic enviroment I have been in yet. (and the most risky) A friend of mine decided to go with me early one morning and check it out before it was torn down, like every other abandoned building on that block.
