What This Drone Footage Captured At This Abandoned South Carolina Navy Base Is Truly Grim

This combination drone and handheld video footage of an abandoned building on the Charleston Navy Base compound shows a downtrodden view of a once grandiose building initially used to house sailors.

As part of the 1993 recommendations from the Base Realignment and Closure Commission, in 1996 this building was abandoned with the closure of the Charleston Navy Base. Prior to its closure this particular building had been converted into an office complex.

The 1996 closure of the Charleston Navy Base was a stunning blow to the community as a whole.
