Since its closure as an active pumping station in the late 1960s, the Calf Pasture Pumping Station has been neglected. Currently, most windows are boarded up and a high fence surrounds the property as the various institutions on Columbia Point build and expand. The beauty of the building and the mystery of the inaccessible have led many people to wonder what the interior looks like.
UMass Boston’s Associate Provost Peter Langer toured the inside of the building in 2011, and took these photographs.
Several others have had access to the building, and recorded the building’s interior. Late in 2008, an artist entered the building, and documented their visit on the website Desolate Metropolis.
