Coal Power Plant
Status: Closed Down
Reason: Part of Institution that closed
This abandoned power plant was built in the early 1900's and provided power for a state institution up the hill. This power plant was coal driven. The Reading Railroad would provide weekly drop offs of coal to this power station. The state school / hospital had issues with abuse and neglect and was ordered to close in 1986. The school remained with power up till 1991 when the light switch, in other words, was turned off for the entire campus. This power plant remained vacant and still does today. Coal can still be found inside which I thought was very cool. A lot of decay inside this one too. I did not explore everything due to the sketchy catwalks but it was still cool to see some older equipment.
