Plymouth County Tuberculosis Clinic

Built in 1923 the Plymouth County Hospitals main purpose was to help deal with a tuberculosis epidemic that was happening in the late 1920s around the plymouth county/boston area. after the need for such a place died out it was used as a normal hospital and later a mental institution being renamed to the Cranberry Specialty Hospital. which closed for good in 1992. Since then it has been subject to multiple arsons, vandalism and partial demolition of the burnt out sections of the property. Most local residents claim the property to be haunted, the premesis is also patrolled by local police.
 Yesterday some friends and I went on a road trip to find the Cranberry Specialty Hospital, and after much searching finally found it. We ended up climbing inside a second story window through a rope that was hanging out. but we got stuck in the portion of the building that had been subject to fire and years of water damage. there were recent looking generators and strings of lights from construction teams. but even then. no one had cared for this building in a long time. The inside was mostly dark because of the heavily boarded windows and at multiple sections our progress was stunted by a collapsed roof that took everything out down to the basement.
Overall It was a cool place, but we got there a little too late in the day and didnt have much time to explore, nor did I get any pictures that I find good. but Im looking forward to go back and exploring the rest of it. I will admit though I did get some chills everynow and then. oh yeah and just one thing when we did leave I had gone up to the second floor and was taking pictures, when I looked out a window and saw my friends running for the other side of the fence, you know its always good to tell that last person your leaving so they dont go and recklessly walk on some broken floors, thinking they got back up incase they fall through one.
