i struggled to pick a picture from this adventure–some are super abstract, some are details that caught my eye, and only a few give a sense of the place as a whole. i hope this is one of those.

this is the old mansfield reformatory. full of ghost stories, peeling paint (lead, i think. they warned you not to go in if you were pregnant or a kid), and echoing hallways.

this, believe it or not, is the cellblock. maybe 6 stories tall?

i’m not too good with creepy. and a self-guided tour in a dark, abandoned prison was pretty darn creepy. but this is the place where Shawshank Redemption was filmed, and John was determined, so we went! more photos on flickr. and yes, we made it out just fine.
