10 Amazing Abandoned Bank Vaults

When you think of a bank vault you probably tend to think about thick steel doors, massive locks, armed guards, deposit boxes and lots of cash, which is why it is so strange to see what they look like when they've been abandoned! These vaults were built to withstand robbery attempts, so they survive even when the building is destroyed around them. Many have found a new life with a different purpose. The vault pictured is in Bodie, California.

I used to work for a catering company and there is a vault in the woman's bathroom at the Turner Hill Mansion in Ipswich MA. Turner Hill is a classic American "ridiculous turn of the century mansion" complete with ghosts (Mr and Mrs Rice, the original owners, both died in the house) and a bowling alley in the basement. The modern bathrooms and commercial kitchens are built into the old servants quarters, and the vault was located between the breakfast room and the butler's room.

There is also some kind of crazy old vault at Maudsley Park in Newburyport MA. It's built into a hill. The house is no longer there, the owners (more rich crazy turn of the century people) donated the land to be used as a park and the house was razed, but the stables and the vault remain.
