Metropolis Nevada Ghost Town 2012

I made it out to Metropolis Nevada today and it was definitely worth the trip! The old hotel and school are definitely looking like they won't be around in too much longer, but if you want to get out and see it, it's definitely worth it. I didn't know there was a cemetery located in Metropolis, so it was a nice to find it.

Vandals have seriously done a number on the area and have attempted to destroy even what little is left. From bond fires inside the lower level of the school to spray paint on the walls. I really hate vandals who carelessly destroy our history.

Here is a link to my album.

That's good to hear it's the same as it was 11 years go. We liked it and thought it was worth the trip. Of course it would be nice if the school and hotel had more to explore. What did you think when you were up there?

The first time I visited Metropolis was in 1986. My oldest boy and I explored the site of the motel and school.

The jungle gym bars, part of which are shown in the thumbnail for the link to Bob's gallery, was complete in those days (uprights and cross bars). The school had only the main floor and entrace facade as it is now, but the basement was relatively clean. I don't recall any grafitti, and I could still see faint chalk marks on a blackboard that still hung upon one of the walls that divided the basement into several rooms.

I last visited Metropolis in 2001. I felt quite uncomfortable in the basement because the support columns were quite feeble looking, and appearing like people had been deliberately trying to collapse the main floor into the basement. Grafitti was everywhere, including foul langauge and pornographic verbiage and characatures. So I went around the parimeter of the town and did find the site of the former railroad station. I didn't take the time to try to find the cemetery.

The cemetery is very close to the school, not more than a 1/4 mile away. It's really a shame what loser vandals have done to the place, it really does looks like some idiots were trying to collapse the entire thing. What the hell is wrong with some people?
