The Exploration Of Old Lodge

Front Outside View

Old Lodge is a 10,000 square-foot building built circa 1890, built in Tomkins Cove, New York. Over the years it was used as a hotel, a private school, a girl scout camp, and private residence. There are unconfirmed reports that the building was used as a nursing home for a short period of time. Years of neglect and decay have left it as a ‘shell’ of a building, and as such it has been formally condemned and entry to the building is strongly discouraged and extremely dangerous.

At the time of the writing of this article, the property is for sale for $399,000 with the condition of sale being that the building is to be demolished and removed. In other words, this place isn’t going to be around for much longer, but it is NOT a good idea to take pictures here. In fact, it is so dangerous that even the real estate refuses to show the old building to prospective buyers. I should note that I was not aware of the inherent risks of entering this place until after I got home and had the misses do some research.

While little is known about this location, the one thing that I know for sure is that this was perhaps the most dangerous and unstable locations I have photographed so far. I must insist that nobody else attempt to enter this building for any purpose; the entire structure is completely unstable and the floors have hidden soft spots everywhere from years of water damage.

My company specializes in writing, photography, and website design. My father gave me my first camera when I was a small child, and it quickly became my most prized possession. I was also fascinated with exploring places others rarely ever ventured, such as abandoned places, buildings, and railroad cars.

As time went on, I formed a business centered around my passion; living larger-than-life adventures, and sharing the photographic journey on my website.
