Old Security Checkpoint An abandoned gatehouse bearing the name of the former factory. Similar Images ...based on the tags: boarded-doors, broken-windows, guard-shack, shadows, signs, snow... Storms and waves, focused by the Port of Wisconsin entry have focused the faces to tear-up these boards below. One of Martinsdale’s defunct businesses perpendicular to the depot.

Some sort of materials handling building, judging by the construction. The stone chapel sits beside the main house and received a particularly heavy dose of gothic architectural touches. My favorite shot from the trip. Later in its life, the plant was converted to burn its own byproducts, but it seems this was designed as a coal hopper. Pipe fittings in little drawers, lit by tea lights. An exit from the concourse.
