Exploring a Giant Abandoned Factory in Eunice, Louisiana

August 31, 2017

The thing about exploring abandoned property is that you have to be courageous and stupid enough to actually do it. So this is the story about the day when I convinced my most courageous and stupid friends to go along with me to an abandoned factory in Eunice, Louisiana.

I was told about this spooky old abandoned factory/office in Eunice, Louisiana, a short drive from where I live. I was hyped by tales of giant old buildings and dangerously dark corridors. It worked.

A few days later it was the weekend and I was on my way to Eunice with a couple of friends and our cameras.

It wasn’t long before we found ourselves in front of a spooky old building with a forest growing out of it and 30+ years of no health code inspections. So naturally we dove head first inside of the totally safe building.

The inside was much like a cave. Dark and wet. Unless you’re near an entrance, the interior was pitch black. We used flashlights to see where we were going. And much like a cave, there were constant sounds of distant streams of water everywhere — the walls, the ceiling, everywhere. It was extremely eerie.

One of my favorite places inside was near the outdoor break area. Mother nature had begun to reclaim the courtyard and found her way indoors as well.

It wasn’t long before the pitch-black horror vibe of the building’s interior encouraged us to leave. We left to check out the junk yard next door.

The junkyard wasn’t as thrilling as a cave building but it still had some interesting views. We didn’t stay too long. Broken car here. Broken car there.
