Frontier Gas is a former (?) gas station chain. Chain O’ mines reused a scrapped sign to mark their mill. Under the paint you can barely make out: GLORY HOLE GOLD MILL.
Some guerilla art for passing drivers on I-94 East to enjoy. Artist unknown.
Looking into the main workhouse from the skyway into the annex elevator. But who care? Look at the colors!

I couldn’t help but include this ghost sign for a demolished motel…
A tunnel between the outside gate and the courtyard shared by the barracks.
The control room was used through the mid-1990s as the plant was used to stabilize the power grid.
The shaft house, where hydraulic steel doors allowed or denied entry into the mine shaft. Overhead is a light and alarm. If it sounds, the mine is being evacuated, and you best not go in and best stay the hell out of the way. Locals dump tires here, now.
