The second Blair Witch film was partly filmed in an abandoned school, I believe it was Admiral Farragut Academy. One of the reasons it closed was due to paranormal events happening. IT became a hotspot for local teenagers (like my older brother) and they frequently visited the abandoned school. Well the producers of Blair Witch 2 need a location for their movie and they pick Farragut. Well weird stuff goes on with them too. Their props went missing and when the cops were called they couldn't find anything. Only for a few hours later, their props returned. The security cameras set up by the film crew caught nobody entering or exiting. Yet the props managed to disappear and reappear. MY brother once told me of a light he and his friends spotted when he was on one of his frequent trips to the academy. I still remember that place, it was a very terrifying looking place. Now i'm not sure if it was Farragut or not but i'm 90% sure it was.
I mean, in the movie there's a door made into the left side of the big window.
But the big window in the above pic is an even bigger window than in the movie. It has many more panes of glass.
Not to mention that in the movie there are more windows down below the entrance window, but in the real-life pics there isn't.
That latest pic looks the most accurate.
The Clipper Mill warehouse that is next to the Assembly Apartments in Baltimore is the right place, but the door and the bridge seen in the film are on the south side of the building, facing Druid Hill Park. Google Street View doesn't show that side, but if you use the 3D view on Google Maps you can see it.
It's called Tractor Building according to the Clipper Mill Community website.
The brick Tractor Building was constructed in 1916 and, like the Assembly Building, was used for the assembly of large machines. The Tractor Building accommodated cranes and pits. Mill equipment and aircraft gun houses are among the products once assembled in the building.
The Tractor Building now provides parking for the residents and tenants of the Assembly Building. Plans are in the works to renovate this building into residential and office space.
I found this awhile back and tried (unsuccessfully) to verify it.
Sounds like that rumor is nothing more than a rumor...
The majority of the film was shot over a period of 44 days in the spring of 2000 on location outside of Baltimore, Maryland. The exposition scenes featuring the characters camping were shot in Gwynns Falls Leakin Park, and the stone ruins of the Rustin Parr house were constructed out of styrofoam. The scene featuring Tristen in the hospital was shot at an abandoned sanitarium in Baltimore. Jeff's loft house in the film is actually the Clipper Mill, located on the edge of Baltimore.
The hospital footage featuring Jeff was shot mere weeks before the film's release at the request of Artisan Entertainment, and was shot on location at the Kirby Forensic Psychiatric Center on Randall's Island in New York City. Additionally, the graphic footage of the main characters murdering the foreign tourists was shot last-minute in director Berlinger's backyard after principal photography.

I don't see how the "majority of the film" was shot outside Baltimore, seeing as how the majority of the film takes place in the upper balcony of the warehouse (single floor parking garage now) at Clipper Mill. And it was actually filmed inside there as well - under the four or five skylights on the back, right corner of the roof. Which is also above where Tristen was hung from. Above Jeff's living room, in other words.
Yes I know, semantics, but I'm just trying to point out that most of the film takes place inside Jeff's home. But yes, all the other footage was shot at those different places.
