This is one of the only places left around this area that I know of that is still left to explore. If you know of any others please let me know. This place is easy to get into, however it is not safe! The main floor seems to be ok, but once you get upstairs (by use of a ladder on the outside of the window from the second to third floor) it is very dangerous. As you can see the ceiling is destroyed in some places, so the weather comes right in, and has for years, so explore with caution. As far as the bottom floor, I could not get to it. The staircase had collapsed. I probably could have gotten down there, but wasn't sure I'd be able to get back up if I did, and that is the only way out. It was pretty empty on the 2 floors I was able to see, so I figured that the bottom floor would probably be the same, so I didn't go crazy trying. You could probably bring in a piece of rope to make a make shift ladder to make it easier getting down and back up, but I went in with nothing but my phone and a flashlight.

I live in Lynn now, this was the first exploration that I have really done since before they tore down Danvers State. So if there are any local people around that know of any cool spots around here I could check out, let me know. Or if you are looking for an exploration buddy, I would love to tag along.

    Yeah this is the white building behind the old hanger building. I was about to get in with a small electric screw driver. On the front porch there are boarded up windows using only Phillips screws, came off in about a minute, and it was overgrown with bushes so no one could see where I was. I wouldn't mind going down there with you guys, as long as you guys take me to one of your favorite places to explore.
