Simply Known As “Woods”

I typically like to provide a bit of history about an exploration site, however, sadly I couldn’t find a lot of information about this particular site.  But what I do know is that, the original church, Visitation Catholic was built in 1925 and operated until the parish was dissolved in 1989.  It is unclear how long the church sat vacant, before it was purchased and reopened as Woods Cathedral Church of God in Christ.  Woods closed its doors in 2005 and the church has been quietly decaying ever since.

 

In May 2012, much to the surprise of urban explorers who frequently visit the church, two Los Angeles based artists had spent several hours and/or days assembling a sizable artistic installation on the sanctuary floor with furniture and other miscellaneous items that had been left behind (including desks, sofas, chairs, televisions, tables, pianos and pews).  As of April 2014, the installation remains pretty much undisturbed.
