This was the Oak Ridge maximum security facility for the criminally insane. It was demolished in 2014, but I shot these pictures part way through the process. I would have liked to get more pictures, and get inside, but this is as close as I was able to get before a security guard showed up and chased me off. Apparently, they had cameras that I didn't see.

I wish I could have got more pictures. I had plenty of opportunity over the years. I worked there on a closed ward one summer as a painter when I was 17. My wife used to volunteer there occasionally and I used to sit in the car and wait for her. The original main entrance was an impressive piece of architecture.
When taking photos of the "gate" of Oakridge (as the building has been demolished) I had a car pull up with a bunch of older gentlemen in it, one of them informed me we aren't allowed to take photos of the property. Well, in my defence I had a doctor from Oakridge in my vehicle at the time of visit & he was replaying his memories as I took my photos. Photos were taken before getting stopped.
