Abandoned Youth Detention Center

Explored! January 18th, 2010

This place just shut down in 2009 shortly after Maya Angelou visited there, so it looks pretty much the same way that it did while it was in operation. All the lights were still on, A/C was PUMPIN (it was freezing in the buildings), and even the football field scoreboard was lit up! Excellent waste of tax money...

This was a youth detention center for teenagers awaiting trial in Washington DC - it was infamous for shady teachers, escaped inmates, and poor living conditions. A new active site is right up the road, leaving this place ripe for exploring..
