Their descendants remained in occupation until World War II, when it was taken over by the National Railway Company of Belgium as an orphanage. It was later converted to a school, but has been empty since 1991. Wikipedia states the obvious when it says that “the enormous building, now in a derelict state, has become a favorite venue of urban explorers.” (via Sinister Lava)
