    *** Attention *** --- I want to preface this with the fact that
    this story was our first trip to the school, On our second the
    Danvers Police politely asked us to leave by saying "Get the hell
    out of here before you get yourselves killed" So be forwarned ---



    The location of our last exploration wasn't abandoned, really. It
    was in the middle of renovation, turning the historical 20?s era
    building into a more contemporary institution of learning. @erin and I
    entered the building without any trouble, mostly due to the giant
    holes smashed into the sides of the building for construction
    equipment to enter. The sounds of a baseball game in the
    crowded park next to the building faded as we went deeper into
    the school. We walked up a flight of stairs to discover deserted
    hallways covered with a thin coating of concrete dust.

    What fun!  Locker doors with construction paper name
    tags swung open as we passed them. We ventured in
    and out of old classrooms, our footprints leaving a
    winding path in the residue. We noticed some floors
    were still somewhat intact while others were
    completely ripped apart, with no evidence of where
    classrooms once stood. These floors were usually
    roped off with caution tape, because only one board
    separated you from falling through to the next level.

    The gym provided us with not one, not two but three
    rope swings, which made us think of our friends at
    Northville Tunnels. We wandered through different
    floors and hallways, stopping in random
    rooms to look out the window or to comment on the random
    things left behind. We finally found the ladder to the roof,
    which was in a room painted an obnoxious shade of pink.
    The roof had an excellent view of the town and the traffic
    that was speeding by below us, not bothering to notice two
    people spending their Saturday afternoon relaxing four
    stories above them. After taking in the view, we went back in
    to the building for one last walk around. We'll have to do a
    live infiltration when the construction is done to see how it all
    came out.
