Identical warehouses seem a little newer than the rest of the plant. I suspect these were added in the mid-1950s for the Korean War, during which about 200 buildings were added to the complex.
The gold mine is now a gravel pit.
The Bunk House was not just for sleeping, but it was for eating and recreation too. In one corner, near the door to the Blacksmith Shop (left) is this terrific stove, probably original (circa 1937).
Watch your head, say the colors. This side of the plant is apparently still standing and is owned by the city.
One of the many fireproof bridges connecting the factory sections, one way to prevent fires from spreading throughout the plant.
While walking out I snapped this last shot of the sunset drenching the castle-top watertower (staying with the theme), right before the sun dipped below the hill across the stream from which the whiskey was distilled.
The superstructure for the sea-leg skyways serves no purpose now… the offices are bricked up, too. Why?
This is part of the oldest section of factory, one that hasn’t had a roof in a long time and all usable equipment has been extracted. The machines pictured would spin sliced beets in boiling water… it was a sealed system before someone cut holes on sides of each unit.
Sunset through a stained window in the headhouse made the floor feel like a heavy industrial Disney movie.
