St. John Prep New Orleans

So during my recent trip to New Orleans my friend Cambre and I decided to enter the old prep school uptown. We went through both of the three story buildings and saw how nothing's been touched since the storm a couple years back. We even found the biology room with ziplock bags full of decomposing frogs that were for dissection in science class. It smelled of death all throughout.

(no subject)


No real backstory this time. Simply because I don't know one and don't care about the research. This place is listed as one of the most haunted places in Rhode Island in a haunted in Rhode Island book. You're unable to get onto the second floor due to them cementing off the stairs. The tower in the last few pictures is in back of the place and isn't connect I don't think. I know the tower was used for look out during a war.

Sort of Abandoned



This is not necessarily abandoned as much as it is "abandoned in place". Sloss Furnace is a former pig iron plant that closed in 1971. Much of this location appears like it did 35 years ago, and the City of Birmingham operates it as a gigantic museum you can wander around in all on your own. A lot of the rusty equipment dates back to 1882 when the place opened. This is a great spot that gives you the feel of an abandoned location without all the pesky trespassing. (not that there's anything wrong with that)
