Our group, +Ohio Exploration Society, will be doing an exploration in Lancaster, OH, later tonight. Some sections of the building we are going to were built in the 1840s. I'll post more details once we're done!

Sweet view of the skyline! This place looked like it was pretty big.

Help save the Athens Ridges!
 
Please consider signing this petition to help save the Athens Ridges, a former insane asylum. Ohio University now owns the property and is planning on demolishing several of the buildings, including the old tuberculosis hospital within the next month. The petition is sponsored by the Athens County Historical Society and Museum.

+Jason Keomany This is in Toledo.  The old House of Corrections.  They may be willing to let you check it out, but you definitely need a respirator.  and authorization.

Most of our stuff has been done without permission. Whenever possible, we try to get permission because usually the person letting us in can tell us some of the place's history and other tidbits of info we wouldn't have otherwise. We did get authorization from the park service to explore the workhouse. I don't remember the guy's name, but I just emailed in through the parks website.

Love old amusement parks!  A mix of creepy Scooby-Doo-ness and lost fun.

Ditto.  I think the last time I was in "The State up North", it was to visit the Henry Ford.  That was probably at least 10 years ago.  Otherwise it was always a cross country meet while I was in HS.

Americana up in Monroe,The Powder Factory in mason, and Surf Cincinnati are a few. I haven't heard of anyone getting into the subways for years since they blocked the tunnel off I-75 I would be interested in getting some current pics of that. That neighborhood near Christ is "The Glencoe Hole" take backup if you plan on going to that one, lol not the nicest of neighborhoods.
