Check out our newly-uploaded video from our 2005 exploration of the Lakin Industrial School in West Virginia. The building was demolished in 2006 after AEP purchased the property.

It was along State Route 62 between Point Pleasant and Mason. Sadly, the place was demolished almost a decade ago after AEP acquired the property. This footage was circa 2005 and had been sitting in a pile of recordings we had never converted to digital.

If you want to see our photos of the place and read a little about its history, check out our page here, http://www.ohioexploration.com/lakinindustrialschool.htm.

Catching a glimpse inside Green Lawn Cemetery's Hayden Mausoleum is very rare. We were fortunate enough to find the mausoleum's large wooden doors open one day in 2004 and filmed this never-before-seen two and a half minute video of its interior.

Story

Exploring Ohio's Forgotten & Historical Sites
Introduction
Founded in the summer of 2000, the OES is a group of urban explorers who visit both well-known historical locations and those forgotten with time. Members of the Ohio Exploration Society research and photograph locations that include everything from abandoned buildings to rural cemeteries to ancient Indian mounds to wonders of nature. We publish our research and photos on our website in an attempt to preserve the history and memory of these important sites.

In addition to documenting Ohio's forgotten and historical sites, the OES offers paranormal investigations. Our core paranormal team has many years of experience investigating paranormal claims. Unlike some paranormal groups who emulate what they have seen on television shows, the OES and our partners have developed our own investigative techniques. Our team focuses on physical research by using video recorders, digital cameras, audio recorders and other electronic equipment combined with historical research to document paranormal events. We also use intuitive research in some investigations.
