The Bennett School for Girls is a hulking ruin at the outskirts of Millbrook, New York.
It flourished for a time, but eventually went bankrupt and was abandoned in 1978.
Over the last 35 years it has gradually become swallowed up by vines. Sections of the roof and outer balconies have rotted and fallen.
Inside, the floors have collapsed in places, making it rather treacherous to explore. It was scheduled to be torn down last fall, but Millbrook is having a hard time figuring out how to come up with the money for demolition.
