At the center of a dusty windswept town stands the target of today’s exploration Constructed in 1924 the grand building was once the crown jewel of Texarkana Today however, it’s decaying walls and collapsing floors are only a reminder of times past Now we’re venturing inside to discover.

No no car, but it’s weird because the shaft doesn’t continue downwards more This must have just been accessed for a maintenance area Yeah, cuz here’s where the bump stop was for the elevator Stairs above us too Completely rusted through on some of them. They’re not rusted through the marble is busted Okay, we’re at the lobby you can see right in so let’s be careful Woah It’s a nice staircase This is the main lobby Wow the curtains’ still there This place has been abandoned since the 90’s I’m behind the pole Pretty big Somebody’s very organized with their beer These tired curtains really sell the creepy look Looks like the whole roof collapsing back here It’s barely even a building anymore lets head up to the second floor of the lobby Oh my god this building is fun [Sigh] Don’t know about this step Every floor is gonna be like this And the other staircase looks worse but this right here looks like standing on the side Elevator Shaft I got that water in my mouth Got it direct right in my mouth Look at these stairs these are the ones we saw from below pretty fucked Wow glass panes on elevator doors it is not something you see anymore This elevator looks like it was Completely replaced the doors like a normal door And the car is pretty plain looking Get all the furniture in here You found another stairwell, this is the dark and creepy one? Okay, we’re going up in this stairwell because why go up the dark and creepy stairwell when you don’t have to All the rooms look pretty empty Pretty big though And they’re gonna have a fun time renovating this place It’s probably not even gonna resemble yeah, there’s water it will save the outside it’s like a shell Here’s another elevator These are the main elevators yeah And neither has the arrow indicator my favorite part of all hotels All these TVs they left behind are cool and the fact that most bathrooms still have intact mirrors, and they’re clean mirrors Oh the razor slot Next floor yeah. not much here no, we might wanna be going straight for the roof yeah Into the creepy stairwell this one at least looks more structurally sound than the other one though oh This is an old TV Could choose from 13 different channels it looks like Control the brightness sewing was vertical and the volume It looks like a suite or like some kind of connected room This looks old And this fridge still have a bed frame in here And a sofa in here Look at this TV This is back when TV’s were like a piece of furniture this one had 13 channels again just like the other TV state-of-the-art state-of-the-art 13 channels Well the back is pretty ripped out That’s a shame This room is pretty cool Minty Except black mold or fire damage. I think it’s a mixture of all fire damage. Fire With the writing on the door This is not like a sweet though Oh nice Together all destroyed 7/8 TVs. It’s it’s a lot. They’re all different – yeah I Feel like this place has all of your cliche urbex photos like here is your chair just Sean underneath the window Here’s your long, hallway with a creepy window at the end That siege easy to pop out the window Right, that’s the TV. That’s the TV yeah anyway, this looks like a press a letter setter a Little work try it We found a new staircase that goes up but not down That’s weird To look at the building over here It’s fucked oh My god, it’s like a very concrete It’s still there. Well. It’s basically just a frame yeah When they run out of this they’re gonna tear out everything except the frames, I’m gonna have to Is that maybe an elevator car I want to see the second one if it’s like a vintage one. It’s not Well the car is right there two floors up so that’ll be cool to look at if it’s an older one Well, we can make it up one more of these I’ll believe the renovation when I see it Yeah look how much older this elevator car looks new it Fresh air it’s a pretty nice roof deck The Spanish tile roof really stands out from all the other buildings in this town Until the sign predates neon because you can see the spots where our light bulbs would have been Looks like a cool room in here, but there’s like another room built into it it’s now falling apart You think this was some kind of ballroom, and then they built built rooms inside of it Oh, yeah, he can see the molding. This is definitely a ballroom. Yeah, they wouldn’t put that up Elvis Co more rooms Into it I? Would just skip that step yeah This stairwell is pretty sketchy as well Elevator machiner the sign is right on top of this right Maybe you would climb out here and go onto the roof, but it doesn’t exist anymore. Let’s see what? Yeah, this was roof also, holy cow This is the highest we can get unless there’s a ladder on the outside of the building which I don’t think we’re gonna climb No going outside and him the building. Yeah. It’s a horrible idea All right, let’s head out Currently there are plans to redevelop the building into residential lofts, but the construction date continues to be pushed back Given the condition of the building and its surrounding area the developers certainly have their work cut out for them But hopefully they can save this historic building Thanks to audible for making this video possible Audible has an unmatched selection of audiobooks original audio shows news and much more since you like our exploration videos take a listen to the lost city of Z a story about an explorer who travels into the Amazonian rainforest to uncover a forgotten city Moddable makes it easy to enjoy books and other audio content anytime no matter what you’re doing Audible allows you to build your own library that you get to keep forever Even after your trial period expires or you decide to cancel your membership Audiobooks are great for helping you be a better you whether you want to feel healthier again motivated or learn something new Try today by using the link audible.com slash proper people or text the code proper people that’s P ro P er PEO ple to five hundred five hundred and instantly get a free 30 day trial and a credit for a free audiobook You
