This is a 1956 furnace. It was used to forge wheels, casings, and parts for the axel shop.
When the building switched souls from booze to bread, these contraptions were mounted across the brewhouse floors… they’re not for hops, either.
C’mon and grab your friends… we’ll go to very—rusty lands…
Another ruined spiral staircase in the mill.
The south wall of the power plant. Its sheet metal skin couldn’t fit around the structure, it seems… note the very strange protruding superstructure.
Spare parts ready for this building’s reactivation.
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).
I love the ‘hats’ on the top of the SWP-4 headhouse. FP-100C.
Levers and indicators to control and track the path of mine cars moving up and down the mine shaft. Note the mine depth indicators would trace paper… this is because the steel cables stretch out over time, so the line length changes with the years.
