When I arrived at this place, my expectations were low. I had checked it out on Street View, and it appeared that everything was boarded up pretty tight. Still, I wanted to have a look just the same.

To my surprise, we were able to get a look inside after all. The kitchen remains fully equipped, the morgue was quite cool, and all-in-all, this was a great place to visit. So much so, in fact, that we went back a second time.
