This is from an expedition several weeks ago.
This site was the location of the former Camp Myles Standish, a jump off station for troops headed to Africa and prison for German and Italian POW's during World War II. After the closing of the camp in 1946, this location was a candidate for the United Nations Headquarters, another site was ultimately selected. In 1951 the Commonwealth of Massachusetts took over the camp, it soon became the Myles Standish State School for the Mentally Retarded, later renamed the Paul A. Dever State School in honor of Paul A. Dever, former Governor of Massachusetts, who was instrumental in seeing the school facility built.
The pictures and video do not do this place justice, it is simply amazing. There are over 30 buildings on the site, many connected by tunnels, and all of them abandoned.
You'll find a lot of misinformation on the internet about this place, keep in mind, the Paul. A. Dever State School is about as haunted as Ghost Hunters.
