I've been neglecting you, oh abandonedplaces. So to make up for it, here is a huge bunch of pictures from one of the abandoned schools I went to on my road trip to rural North Dakota in May. This was the second time I'd been to the school and I liked it so much I had to bring my roadtripmate eatstoomuchjam there. The first time I didn't go in because I didn't know there was a road that went right up to the door, and I was 8 months pregnant.


ahhhh, the Brantford School, the second time. It always tastes better the second time...




hey! free roller skate!




gold. who knew?


the floor at the entrance was soft and full of holes. That never stops eatstoomuchjam.


what is that nasty can next to him? Sometimes its better to NOT know.


there he goes! I, being a chicken, did not go upstairs. It took me a while to get up the nerve to walk across that holey floor to get to the basement.


sure was purdy though!


free bike!


ok so I went halfway upstairs.


I just loooooved those front windows!



now lets go poke around in the basement!









eatstoomuchjam

what's in that door behind him?

the potty!


an uncomfortable chair if I've ever seen one.


the other room




oh hey there's me at the front door!


I like this picture. It was the first one eatstoomuchjam took with my camera and it was still set for indoorsy pictures. Hence the insane overexposure. But I like it. My shirt looks red.

Hope you liked Brantford! I did! Except for the wood tick I think I picked up there... =P

Wow. Looks like you guys had fun.

Did you figure out what the device was hanging next to the ladder?

We did! We photographed stuff in about 45 towns, went to 5 100% ghost towns, went in at least 3 schools, 1 hospital and a power plant. It was a blast!

It looks like it says "Cycle Controller" on it. What kind of cycle? I didn't look at it up close. But here's a closeup from the picture I posted.

My guess, it's a timer for the night lights.

Nice photos. That's funny that he's wearing flip flips, somehow I always manage to wear flip flops when I go exploring. Only a few cuts and scrapes here and there though.

Yeah I'm strange... I tend to notice the little facts rather than the big picture.

haha "Kem Glo" paint. It was used in the 50's and 60's. I don't know if it was taken off the market or not due to the harmful chemicals used in it but my mom told me while growing up she had a bathroom that was painted with Kem Glo and it actually made the walls look like they were glowing.

LOL thanks for the info! It really sounds from the name like evil stuff. "Kem" makes me think "chemical" and "Glo" makes me think "radiation" =)

I really dig the angles you took some pics from. And the one with the chair, it's just awsome.
