Abandoned Youth Detention Center

Explored! January 18th, 2010

This place just shut down in 2009 shortly after Maya Angelou paid a visit to the facility in May. 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 on FULL BLAST (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..
