16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Tome School Ruins

My cousin and I went exploring a local abandoned location, as we've done many times before. Tome School was a private boarding school, then converted to a military school before it closed in the 80's. In this shot is what used to be the formal entryway to the Main Hall, and there are two grand staircases wrapping up either side of the foyer to the second floor. My cousin is sitting on the remains of the left stairwell.
