Marlboro Slaughterhouse 11/02

This time around, I found the nifty side entrance to the Slaughterhouse property I couldn’t find before. It cuts out a good 20 minutes of walking. We walked by the old house & sheds…….nothing new there. The ‘road’ that runs through the property is a long one. We walked by the burnt down building where the trail splits, and with all the plants being dead, it let me get a good shot of what looks like another building near the burnt down one.

We walked up to the Slaughterhouse. I didn’t really come back for it, but since my brother was with us and he had never been to the Slaughterhouse yet, I figured I’d let him walk through. But that didn’t happen.


What exactly is that? Well…….that’s the only entrance to the Slaughterhouse…….now barricaded by a bulldozed pile of dirt and trees.
There’s also an old trailer in front of the Slaughterhouse. I took a pic of its inside.

This time, I found a nearly-overgrown trail behind the building. The entire thing had 2 walls running along it. From what I saw, it has 3 sides, and it leads to something further in the woods. It was too overgrown to continue or see clearly, but it looked like another building or a large fence. Here’s part of the wall:

These lead to a building in the back, but everything's too overgrown to reach it

Finally, what I came for…..the basement of the house I went in last time. I got 2 good pics:

This table was the only thing in the basment

Some old pipes and I think a heater or boiler

I found another house this time too. This one was pretty beat up and hard to reach, so I just snapped this picture of it.

They came in and ripped up the old railroad running through the property! Here’s the picture of the railroad overhang from last September:

The air was much colder underneath the overhang

And now:

They killed it!  Bastards!

The Other House

There is another house at the Slaughterhouse site. I don’t know why anybody else covered it. I got a few good pics of it, inside and out. The kitchen was interesting; it shows the house’s, as well as the whole area’s, age.

Surprisingly in fairly good condition

Originally visited Fall ’01
New photos Spring ’03

Took me 2 years, but here are new (& much better) pics. It’s Asbury; no further explanation is necessary.

I really want to ride a skateboard down this

Yup, HoJo’s is still open. Go give George a visit; he makes a good burger.

Marlboro Slaughterhouse

Note: The slaughterhouse was the original trip for the site. As such, I’ve decided to keep the photos in their original condition. They’re big, grainy, and in all honesty, not that good. But this is how the pics on the site used to look back in the day, and I think they have more personality anyway. I think these were decent for disposable camera photos.
Also, keep in mind I have not been to the SH since 2002, so several of the buildings may have since been knocked down.

Located in Marlboro behind a residential area and a YMCA, the area of the Slaughterhouse is HUGE. And no, it’s not just one slaughterhouse…there are many buildings, some burnt down; part of an old railroad; abandoned chicken coops; sheds; old farm equipment; and other freaky stuff like smashed wooden crosses & ladders sawed in half.

The now popular story is that the place used to be a farm years ago, owned by Mr. Allen. Then when the Marlboro Sanitarium was built (which is practically across the street from the site), the government seized the land. So Farmer Allen went mad because he lost everything he owned. He’d try getting back in his house and just hang around his former property. Eventually he became one of the patients in the very place that took his land. After a few years, he started acting better, so they let him work around and outside the Sanitarium, cleaning and whatnot. And one day, as all loonies do, he escaped. There were reports of animals squealing from the slaughterhouse, but no one was ever caught trespassing. One night, messages in animal blood were written on the wall, saying “I see you” and “Tonight all will die.” Shortly after that, when they failed to receive any report from the night guard, the sanitarium officials sent people to check out the slaughterhouse. The night guard’s body was found in the meat freezer, hung on a meat hook with a pig’s head replacing his own.

Now, some of this story sounds like the typical cheese B movie stuff from Friday the 13th XXIII or something. This story is supposedly documented, but I’ve yet to see anything. I’m not so sure there ever was a Farmer Allen, although the name of the road that runs through the property is (or was) Allen Road. As for the writing on the walls…well that could’ve been spraypainted on at any time. Looks too new to be 40-something years old. This was a pretty popular hangout for kids until cops started cracking down, so that’s most likely where the writing came from. I’ve seen crap like this written just about everywhere I’ve been, so I wasn’t impressed.

This hallway is nicknamed "Death Row"
