Today, we’re exploring an abandoned high school that’s over 100 years old. The community it’s located in was once a thriving steel town, but eventually the industry shut down leaving the local economy in ruin. With the area’s dwindling population, the large three story building became unnecessary and was permanently closed in 2006. Now, join us as we venture inside and discover what remains. Camera. Yep. Definitely not working. So yea, supposedly this high school is just completely full with stuff. Did you hear that? Upstairs. Was that upstairs? It sounded like it. Who knows. Oh shit. What? There is somebody above us. There is somebody above us. Should we go? Oh my god. Yea they’re moving around a lot. Should we say something? No. You’re going to leave? Is that what you’re going to do? No, I’m going to investigate a little bit. They’re over on that side. Yea. What does it sound like they’re doing? Like scrapping maybe. This is the front office. They’re like right above me. There were those guys doing construction over there. Yea. Do you think it could be related to them? No. No. They’re in the building. Should we go? I don’t know. They could get violent when they see us, cause they’re doing something illegal. They’re going to immediately like, especially if we have cameras, they might flip out on us. They’re cutting something. Yea. Should we come back? How much later? I don’t know. Or we could just not go up there. It’s still sketchy, there could be multiple people in the building. Do you just want to explore with the scrapper in here? Maybe. Just avoid him. Alright. We’ll go down this wing first, it’s going like away from him. There’s a globe in this one. There’s another staircase. Damn this thing is big. This is like a more main staircase though. Oh, it was a Christian school. Look how ’90s these, everybody looks. And then there’s an ’86 one here. I don’t know, this is pretty good. Everybody is pretty ’90s. (Oh ok that one is way better.) Did you see these that go back to the ’70s? No, wow, I didn’t even notice them right next to… They’re all faded though. He’s down here now. I think there is multiple people in here. If he walked from that end of the building to this end we would have heard him walking. No, not necessarily. I don’t know. There’s some trophies in here. And a safe. Yearbook from the year 2k. There’s all the photos. This is not a good sign. Oh fuck a driver’s license. We need to get out of here dude. They fucking emptied his wallet. Medicaid. Let’s fucking go dude I don’t like this Let’s get out of here. We decided to leave, but only temporarily. We would check out some of the other buildings on the campus and come back to this one later. Ok, so we went into a different building, managed to make it out of that one. Now we’re in their gymnasium. A lot of people have been coming in here. That’s a unique looking exit sign. Locker room. It’s the visitors’ locker room, according to that door. After exploring the gymnasium, we headed off to a nearby abandoned middle school to kill some more time. But that will be a video for another time. Alright, we’re back in the high school. It’s been about an hour. Hopefully that guy isn’t in here anymore. Do you hear him still? We got to keep our ears peeled. Glossy dress shoes. They’re mouths. That’s the only thing that they’d be used for. For CPR training. Maybe. Man, this hallway is crusty. There’s the cafeteria. I’ll check it out. Yea. Seems pretty big. They got work lights in here. This is like where we heard the dude before. Down here. Do you want to go down here? Yea. He could just be taking a break. More band uniforms. Through the valley of desks and chairs. Yea, there’s the band hats. Not just the hats, like the whole jacket. This was the library I think. Yea, this is reserved. The Dewey Decimal System. Hello Junk. Do you see that book? The Chinese Way. Look, there’s a full piano over there. Like a Grand Piano? Yea, behind the desks. (Oh yea.) Just pieces of piano everywhere. This is where they put they uh… Look at all of these LIFE magazines. What year is it? 1959. 1959? 1959, wow! I want to look at this. Yea. Look at the ads. Yea. Oh my gosh. There’s a mansize feeling of power in smoking a cigar. Because cigars give you a psychological lift. Jeez. Chef Boyardee. Wow. One dollar a day, so 30 dollar a month … lease I guess. Look, the MSRP. Or financing. $1561. Damn. Is that like, (yea that’s the…) yea that’s the MSRP. God damn. Kellogg’s. The Rice Krispie guys. This is so awesome. That’s the ’56 one. Yea. There was something about missiles in here. This is probably the oldest one we’ve found, in here. Yea. Wow. Wow. This is a relic right here. 1946. ’46? God damn. Ozark Farmer. This week’s events. U.S. tests rockets in Mexico. Jap war criminals are… That one’s going to be hard to beat. Here’s another 1946 one. Here’s the crater from the uh, nuclear tests. More doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette. I didn’t even see that. I’m going to grow a hundred years old! Oh my god. Basically saying like we can smoke even though its bad for you because we’re making so much advancements in technology for increasing life expectancy. Ok, we spent like 20 minutes over here by the LIFE magazines, excuse me. I thinks its time to keep moving. Shouldn’t have eaten burritos before exploring. Damnit, there’s pictures. That means we’re going to be stuck looking at these now for another 15 minutes. Alright, I’m gonna take my light panel off… And hold them up? …and we’re gonna put this here, and we’re gonna put them on top. A weird thing goin’ on. What are these? (Something historical.) Oh they’re like educational slides maybe. Yea. They’re like just various pieces of art. On them. (Abstract.) Oh, I actually like that one. That one’s cool. Some of them are historical photos. Yea. We haven’t heard anything since we came back so, I think we’re ok to go up. There’s a lot of chairs just chillin’. Look at all the desks in here. Packed. Look at the ceiling Bryan. I know. You can see where the scrappers started, or was working his way towards. I wonder if this was, he just did all this. Maybe. Do you see where the pipes are cut? Yea. There’s … hangers for pipes all along the walls. It’s probably all taken out. Got the main staircase right here. Auditorium looks really big. Wow. There’s still a prop. Look at this tri-color light. That’s a projector. Oh really? Yea. That looks like a lifeguard chair. Yea. Probably used in the gym for like, volleyball tournaments or something. Oh yea, maybe. Reminds me of something the officiator stands on in like tennis tournaments. Desk in the glass. It’s a bunch of teacher documents I think, like students or stuff, that the teacher would keep. Old computer lab. Is that the good kind of switch? And maybe the (inaudible) is really shitty and old. Maybe. They all feel shit. Another gym. This is the coolest looking one… Three gyms on this property. I mean it was a K through high school, they have a lot of different students to tend to. Ooh, it’s echoey in here. Pigeons. It’s gross, they’re all wet. The heck was this thing with the steering wheel here. Like a driving simulator? Chevrolet. Ooh, oh god that is so sticky. Oh god. Economic Survival, A Financial Simulation. Pretty much describes living in America. It smells like shit. Smells like mold mixed with (inaudible). Yea. Remember the old Gateway computers, with the cow design? What homework? This is a maze of piles of old stuff. Why would they bring everything to the top floor? Cause maybe they didn’t use the top floor before they closed. Another computer lab. Office 97. Man, it’s weird how like the students wouldn’t even be able to see out the windows. They frosted all of them. Seems like you’re trapped. Yea. Look at all of the books in the back wall, textbooks. Science desks. Maybe there will be some science stuff left. Yep, there is. Albatross. Look at all of the writing on the desks too, Jesus. Does the frontside have it, the other side? It does, too? Wow. Paper airplane. Damn, this classroom was a bunch of delinquents. These are like samples. Turtox. Gonad scale, what? A chick ovary. Gonoid scale? Probably stuff to look at under the microscope over there. Oh look at this. It’s plants. Did you see the pufferfish? There’s literally like a pufferfish right here. Yea. This was the science storage closet. And it’s filled with stuff. Smells funky though so I wouldn’t hang out in here for too long. Wow, it almost looks like that closet area was built in later. Cause look how the staircase is. It’s a little weird. Yea. This mostly looks like plant stuff around here. But there are some hearts and organs. A lot of sharp objects right here. Yea, it goes into this room. With a closet too. Oh shit, somebody smashed this up. Just glassware. All the glassware in here, is smashed. Adrenalin. Look at that. Were these real birds? These lights are cool. This floor is like, don’t stand right next to me. The floor is caving in where I step, a little bit. Did you notice there’s like an armadillo right here? Apple IIgs. Look at an armadillo, dead. Taxadermized? I don’t even know. Or is it, did it just wander in here. That’s what I’m wondering. It’s not rotting. It has these things on ’em, so I’m sure… Yea, he’s taxadermized. Yea. Alright, we have seen everything so now it is time to vacate the premises. Currently, there are no plans for saving or repurposing the building. It will likely continue to suffer at the hands of vandals and scrappers.
