Abandoned Owińska Mental Hospital – Polish Psychiatric

Abandoned Owińska Mental Hospital – Polish Psychiatric

Abandoned Owińska Mental Hospital is a decaying historical landmark. History has impacted this village. Furthermore, over 1,100 patients were murdered from here in 1939.

Certainly, the second World War was fraught with unspeakable acts. Ominous and dark halls are now what remains, a reminder of the past.

Abandoned Owińska Mental Hospital

28 mass graves were dug for the bodies. Later, gassing at the Fort VII; (Konzentrationslager Posen) death camp run by Nazi Germany became the fate of the remaining patients from Owińska Mental Hospital. 78 children were among this group. Aktion was the name for the second stage, which was removing the remaining patients to the camp.

Hospital staff is said to have not known what was happening. Afterwards the mental hospital was turned into barracks for SS soldiers.

Abandoned Owińska Mental Hospital

The building itself dates back further, having been built in 1839.

In 1944, part of the buildings were destroyed as an effect of the War. The hospital never reopened.

Abandoned Owińska Mental Hospital

The walls are sloughing away. Peeling back bit by bit. Possibly from layers of paint or due to exposure from weather. Many windows have just been boarded up through time. Also, the hospital has been utterly abandoned for over 20 years.

The Dereliction of the Phelps Road school

Phelps Road Abandoned School

The Phelps road abandoned school wants a remodel. It has been in dilapidation for the past 27 years. At a time it was the Madison Heights High School likewise, for a different era it was Seminole Elementary school.

This history has many believing it should be on the National Register of Historic Places. However, there have been an abundance of fees, labor problems and issues with building . The price for demolition is cheaper when there are these inadequate finances.

Behind the school, in the former parking lot there is the Seminole Park. A little jungle gym and dirt area for tossing a ball. A lone jetting pole stand admits it all.  The chain fence is prettied rusted away and a shopping cart sits nearby. The playgrounds blacktop is also a bit broken up with grass parts coming through.

Phelps Road Abandoned School

“Remodeling”

Renovation may still be plausible even though the county building inspector did label it a hazard, the school was set on a fire and left without upkeep for a couple decades.

A remodeling LLC purchased the property in 2014 to do redo the old Phelps Road School into 30 to 50 apartment units so far they have failed to do so receiving fines in the process.

“The Phelps Road Abandoned School was the Madison Heights High School and the Seminole Elementary School.”

Also, the school was sold for a sum of $10 in 2009. Today it is just about breaking the bank of anyone trying to keep it together. It has been abandoned since the 1980’s and resides along Phelps Road in Madison Heights, Virginia.

Phelps Road Abandoned School

As of July 2018, it stills stands.

The Seminole Park sign rules are :

  • No Alcoholic Beverages, Illegal Drugs or Activities Allowed on County Property.

Abandoned Submarine – A World War II Relic

abandoned kiska submarine

Decaying war relic, an abandoned Kiska submarine from World War II that lays greatly untouched from Japanese-American conflict.

This abandoned Kiska submarine resides on Kiska Island (also known as Rat Island) in the Pacific Ocean.

In 1942, the Japanese invaded the island. The US reclaimed the island a little over a year later in 1943 after the Japanese left the island. The Amphibious Task Force 9; men who died here during World War II, have a plaque established here. The abandoned Kiska submarine of Alaska was one of the remnants of this large scale conflict.

Abandoned Kiska Submarine

This type of submarine blast are believed to be from demolition charges. Another submarine, the USS Grunion was found of the coast of Kiska. This was in 2007 and just some 3,300 feet away. Kiska is only 22 miles long with a with at its widest of about 6 miles.

These midget submarines (also called mini subs) are built to be operated by 1 or 2 people. Although, it can be operated by up to 9.  These types of submarines have no on board accommodations for crew members. Mother ships were usually nearby to dock the sub because the crew would need a place to sleep.

abandoned kiska submarine

Subs like this were generally armed with torpedoes and mines involving detachable side loads. It is now noted as a wartime relic, having been documented by the National Park Service.

The island is used as the idea for Skira in the video Game Operation Flashpoint : Dragon Rising.

Evidence of War

Kiska displays evidence of war to this day. Equipment part caches, trenches / tunnels, gun particles, shipwrecks and more all remain on the Aleutian Island.

To go to this island, special permission is needed.

Abandoned Robot Building of Russia

Abandoned Robot Building

Towering and dominant this structure is lies on the former grounds of the House of Soviets in Victory Square of Kaliningrad, Russia. With a robust architectural design it is also known as the abandoned robot building.

The edifice resides on the part of Königsberg Castle grounds that were destroyed in 1944. Before 1945, this land resided in Königsberg, Germany. The castle burned down following the Second World War at the bombing of Königsberg.

The structural plans were demanding but were put into play in the 1960’s intending, to be a central administration building. As it was being built in the 1980’s it began to sink down into the unsound soil at the foundation. This was due to the old castle’s lower levels, tunnels and moats.

Through-out the years many attempts to get this fortress like structure finished have been pursued but pressures of money cost have caused delays. The inside of this building is left unfinished but the outside was completed in 2005.  Some want to rebuild the castle others think it will cost too much and for now a cobblestone square was set.

Revenge of the Prussians

Sprawling graffiti is dotted along the stairs leading up to grounds. Even though some entrances have been blocked this does not stop people from gaining access. Nature has also begun to grow up around the steps leading towards its doors.

Nick names such as “Monster” and “Revenge of the Prussians” are due to the dislike of the decades long view of the abandoned building. Many residents find the structure to be an eyesore. Such architecture like this, Brutalism, was favored for government projects around this time. Even a part béton brut, with the exposed concrete.

Along the road of Ulitsa Shevchenko, 8, Konigsberg, Kaliningradskaya oblast’ of Russia you will see this towering architecture.

Cook County Hospital Abandoned in Chicago

Cook County Hospital Abandoned

Located along the 1800 block of West Harrison Street in Chicago, Illinois you can find this dilapidated Cook County Hospital abandoned.

Certainly, outside detail like cherubs and faces on the facade are really a work art. The columns on the face of this old building add to its stately feel.

It was stylized in the Beaux Arts by architect Paul Gerhardt St. with Griffiths, John, & Sons. The grandiose look is probably what has kept the building from being demolished.

Opened in 1857, it flourished. By, 1916 the expanding hospital had some of the best doctors in Illinois. Above all, it is recognized as one of the first blood banks in the world.

Cook County Hospital Abandoned

Furthermore, after the closure in 2002 a new hospital was opened.

The hospital has been empty for over 14 years. Talks are under way to remodel this building into apartments, shops, hotel, offices and more.

This would be done in phases possibly taking upwards of 15 years. The estimated funds to rehabilitate the building and area is in the price range of $500 million+. Hence, the delay.

As a result, most of the local community disagree with making the site into housing in the Illinois Medical District. Some think maybe a museum. Possibly because this would be to not take away from the many advances Cook County Hospital had made. The National Register of Historic places documented the hospital in 2008.

Princess Diana of Wales visited patients here in 1996

Fun facts : This was the hospital used in the 1990’s Harrison Ford movie, The Fugitive. The fictional hospital on the drama show ER is allegedly based loosely off of this medical facility. Finally, I call it Murder, the 1979 documentary from BBC reporting on the difficulties faced by the staff.

Tintic – Abandoned Mill and Refinery of Goshen

Tintic Abandoned Mill

Located near Goshen, Utah and out of service since 1925 you can find this forlorn ore reduction mill. Processing the ore in an outdated way caused the closure creating the Tintic abandoned mill.

Along the open land of Genola you can see the remains of this large concentrator and structure. In the small time frame of 4 years the highest productivity annually was up to 200 tons of ore. Another local mill around Eureka provided the metals used here. Reduced after transportation and refined at Tintic. This process is what led to the mill’s abandonment even though it was part of the Tintic Mining District.

Harold Mill is another name for Tintic.

Warm Springs has heavy metal pollution thought to be cause by Tintic which lies below the establishment.

W.C. Madge designed the refinery in 1920 and it processed gold, silver, copper and lead. Deciding to place it on the western slope of Warms Springs Mountain

Tintic Abandoned Mill

The Tintic Abandoned Mill was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. It is classified as ruins. Amax Arizona Incorporated was the owner at the time.

It was the only mill in America using the Augustin process at that time. A process involving roasting and leeching the ore changing it to Chloride.

Lastly, graffiti now covers almost the entire complex. All that remains today of this crumbling structure are iron and drain boxes, leaching tanks, roasters, crushers and water tanks. Any former machinery is now gone.

Furthermore, you can just head to Goshen, Utah. Travel down East Main Street until you come to South State Road 141. Then take a right onto State Street Ext and head down until you see it on your left. Here are the coordinates 39.957607, -111.855172

Forgotten Springburn Halls Abandoned in Scotland

Abandoned in Scotland

Forgotten and abandoned in Scotland since the 1980’s because of decay. The Halls were a gift to the people of Springburn by Sir Hugh Reid. William B White was the architect for the building. Lastly, the incredible statues and sculptures by James M Sherriff.

Built in 1899 out of red sandstone ashler and stylized in an Italian Renaissance style. Furthermore, the glorious hues and colors of this building were due to hematite (iron oxides) residing in the make up of these bricks bits of clastic sedimentary rock.

A different place for public gatherings was preferred by the people of Glasgow because this building was so small. The building took a lot of money to up keep and have running. Later, it was used as a sports centre.

“Let Glasgow Flourish”

Opened in 1902 with the inscription “Let Glasgow Flourish”. Represented to this day on Glasgow’s coat of arms it is from Saint Mungo and the Four Miracles. “Let Glasgow flourish by the preaching of His word and the praising of His name” is the full motto.

The Glasgow District Council closed this establishment in May of 1985 due to dry rot problem. The Springburn Halls had several renovation proposals including an office and childcare center. Consequently, extensive labor costs derailed these renovations caused the building to remain cast aside.

After its abandonment moss, small trees and all sorts of growing things took over. With windows missing on the top floor birds made homes inside and out. Nature began reclaiming this vacant building in a growing urbanizing area.

Finally, the demolition of this building occurred in 2012; the sandstone turned to rubble. You can find the empty lot at 46 Keppochhill Road, Glasgow, Scotland.
