I have done over 1/2 of the underground missions myself with some friends, unfortunately a lot of the above ground missions are not standing today. My most recent mission was the Pillsbury Cavern, it was interesting. But I found something even Action Squad didn't. I found the way into the Pillsbury Mill. Just above the chute entrance about 30 feet in the air there is a 6 by 7 foot square cut into the side of the cliff, and in that small area is a door into the tunnels underneath the sawmill. My friends and I explored into it and found they blocked it all off..... Or so they thought.... There is a 3' by 1 1/2' crack in the ground that goes under the blocked off section, you could see it opened into a large chamber full of rusted pipes running along the wall. And an electrical box that seemed to be out of use, we didn't touch it. We're going back soon, we have to get inside.

Hey guys, great work, this is a classically awesome website! I'm a video producer for AirVuz, which is like YouTube but for drone videos, and I'm wondering if anyone would like to collaborate on a urbex video. We can use drones to get into some tight spaces indoors and also get cool aerial footage of exteriors so if anyone is interested in collaborating with me please email me and we can work together on a sweet exprorin' project!

colin@airvuz.com

Here is an example of some of my work: https://www.airvuz.com/user/Drone-Trippin

Thanks!

this website is really peaking my curiosity in exploration and discovery, seriously such a cool resource. wish it was more active, as it's 2017 and posts haven't been circulating very recently. but i see people leaving guestbook comments, that makes me super excited, that means there are people out there exploring. so dope.

I was a third-shift technician at the Large Animal Hospital in 2001. I can't tell you how many times the indoor sewer covers opened up- usually between 2am and 4am - and someone tried to get their bearings. Almost always the same one too.

The first two times I called the cops with my heart racing. They came both times, but did not follow the intruders. With the amount of bear-sized cockroaches we had coming up from those pipes, I don't blame them.

After working there for 5 years, I stopped calling the cops and just said "hi, would you like directions?". Turns out, the pledges from one of the houses on campus, had to navigate the tunnels, during pledge week. Many of them got lost.

I'm super glad I found your site, many years later. Thanks for letting the rest of us in, on your well documented explorations!

I grew up in Cambridge, MN, and the state hospital has always been such an urban legend in the town. Last year, a few of my friends and I found what we call "the spook room" while exploring trails by the Rum River. This infamous room was basically an underground cement bunker, full of graffiti and candles from angsty teens. It's rumored that the room was used as an incinerator for dead bodies from the hospital because the only external structure was a chimney. After discovering the room, I went there a few times a week, and I believe that it was only part of a whole underground system. The "stairs" leading down were merely cement blocks in front of dirt that seemed to be hollow. Unfortunately, before I could start digging, the city filled in the room. I'm still determined to get into the main building that still stands. It's surrounded by a wimpy chain link fence that's easily accessible from the park trails. Finding this website blew my mind because this hospital has fascinated me to no end. It's pretty spooky stuff. There's a whole gated community that allegedly held the patients after the hospital closed. Hardly anyone is ever in that area of town; it almost seems deserted. I love this site, and it's good to know that others are into intense exploration! It'd be really incredible if such a group could start up again in the cities! I'd love to explore the ruins around the Stone Arch Bridge more in depth.

Ran across your site today very fun and interesting, I used to mess around in the sand mines in the mid 70s till they sealed off the entrance you had to crawl through. Nice work. Can the tunnels and sand mines still be accessed? Not going there I'm 58 and have no desire. Thanks Matt

Back in 2010 my buddie had told me about TOT and said I should go with him to find an entrance. Sure enough we spent 4 hours exploring till we came across an opening. I got home later that night and did some research about all the caves in st Paul and I stumbled across this page. You guys have inspired me so much I've been hooked ever since

Sweet site. The only downside is trying to find some of the places. It's sad to see a lot of the favorite abandoned buildings and places are being lost to condos and upscale apartments. Places are getting harder and harder to find in any major city now days.

It's amazing to hear there are places like this close to home! Very unfortunate however to hear that the squad hasn't done much recently and there's no way to get into something like this. I don't know how I'd feel about exploring from scratch, but I suppose that's just a part of the thrill huh? Super exciting stuff to read about but all I can think about is starting an adventure of my own! I'd say wish me luck but then it's too soon to see if I even have the balls to pull this kind of shit. How about I just say I really admire what you guys have done, and I envy you even more.

I really enjoyed your article about U-More Park (The U-Lands) but the two sites you had linked were broken last I checked. I've done a fair amount of exploring U-More myself, and definitely think you guys should do your own blog post on a trip there. Definitely missing Minnesota right about now. Much love from Chicago!

Love the site guys! I came across the ford steam plant today while walking down the river. It was awesome! I loved walking around and even finding a way inside a few of the buildings there. I'm a huge history buff and it was great to be able to explore and admire an old piece of city and american history. I also found a way into the sand mines, but only went back a few hundred feet. Your site was really informative and helpful in learning about the site I found! I look forward to going back sometime. Cheers!

Love what you guys do, personally I've done my own bit of Urban Exploring myself. My only issue if that you haven't updated this site in a long while. Since 2014 people have been able to live in Abbott Hospital now "Historical Abbott Apartments." Cozy name for a bad place. lol. The renovations began in 2011.

Hamm's Brewery...

Being a direct descendent of Andrew F. Keller, I often wonder what life would be like if Excelsior Brewery hadn't defaulted on the loan... :-)

Kudos! Nice job! Thank you!

I was looking at my old street (where I grew up) on Google Maps, Street View. My heart sank when I "traveled" to Hafner's and saw the place had been leveled. I learned to bowl there and spent countless hours on those lanes during summer vacations. Thanks for the pictures and the history!

Over the last few years I have read about all the Action Squad adventures, I have also explored many of the places on this site! I love the thrill of finding something new! I just wanna say Thank You for having a wonderful website. It is important to find these places on you're own through research and hard work. The most important aspect of this site, besides being educational , They dont disclose the information on how to acess these places. Important to say the least.. exploring the environment is crucial to understanding your surroundings and where you live!! "Take nothing but pictures, Leave nothing but footsteps".

I happened upon your site while surfing info about Hamm's beer and was blown away by the incredible amount of detail you had in your blog. Exquisite pictures of your exploration! The further I read, the more I wanted to read. This is, by far, one of the most interesting websites I have visited in recent memory. Strong work on exploring the Hamm's brewery! Thank you for doing what you do.

Enjoyed your visit to the abandoned Abbott Hospital. I lived at 1801 1st Ave. So. Our apartment windows looked directly on the new main entrance. As a child I saw the new addition being built.

A word about the tunnel mystery. In 1959 or 1960 a new building was built kitty corner at 18th St & 1st Ave So.). I don't remember if this 3 story building was a convalescent center or a dormitory. At any rate, the intersection was closed for several months while they built the tunnel to connect the main hospital to this building. The parking lot across the street to the north was also constructed at that time.

I also spent plenty of time in the Abbott Hospital emergency room located on Steven's Ave. I was prone to needing stitches fairly often as a rough and tumble kid.

Thank you for this look into the abandoned hospital. Too bad the have to tear down some of these historic buildings to make way for condos. It would be nice if they could integrate the existing facades to keep the historic aesthetic. Time marches on.
