Haunted School - Crockett, Texas
Sep 16, 2012

I have been wanting to photograph this old, abandoned school for over a year. I finally made the trip with a friend to Crockett to see what I could get. The forecast was calling for rain but somehow we managed to avoid it. The old school is or is not haunted, depending on your research sources. Personally, I don't believe in ghosts or hauntings but this old building has the stereotypical look of a place that might be haunted.

This school was built in the late 1800 and closed its doors for numerous reasons in the 1970s. The roof and upper levels of the school have collapsed and the building is quite dangerous. I did (like a fool) enter the building and shot numerous frames inside but the best you will get from this old structure is the exterior. You can read more about this old school at this link: http://www.texasescapes.com/EastTexasTowns/CrockettTexas/Mary-Allen-College-Crockett-Texas.htm

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
