Atlanta, Georgia: Stranger Things: Evil Lab Building

Distinctive building exterior of "Hawkins National Laboratory" often seen in the 2016-17 TV series Stranger Things. Horrible experiments take place inside the TV series building, but the real building interior is nothing like that.

Aquinas Center of Theology

1256 Briarcliff Rd NE, Atlanta, GA
Aquinas Center of Theology. East side if the city. On the west side of Hwy 42/Briarcliff Rd NE, either one mile north of its intersection with US Hwy 78, or two miles south of its intersection with Hwy 236. Look for the blue Emory University Briarcliff Property sign. The building is set back from the road. Private property. Visible from the street.

Stranger Things: Evil Lab Building, Covid Season.

Stranger Things: Evil Lab Building

April 2021: parking lot is a COVID test site during the day, blocked off and guarded at night. Having someone kick you out for snooping is on brand though.

Stranger Things: Evil Lab Building

Really cool! We love the show so this was a perfect stop. It is completely abandoned so parking and pictures of Hawkins Lab are no problem!
