I found a historical photo of this room showing 10-foot high machines with wires hanging by the mile from looms and schematic charts.
While the maps name this the compressor house, I believe, based on its size and number of heavy machine mounts, that it also housed the pumps to drain the mine.
A pink room with very heavy doors that reminds me of the rooms at some of the insane asylums that I’ve explored.
A floating spiral staircase, one of two, that link the foyer with the lounge and balcony level. Now the balcony level is a small second stage. A panoramic view of Split Rock LIghthouse wraps around the bannisters.
A high-ceilinged room where kegs would be delivered for cleaning, before they were refilled with fresh booze.
An old stoker in a power plant that was abandoned long before the mill next to it, by all indications. Sugar mills burned dry beet pulp pellets for fuel.
Looking out at the abandoned neighborhood around the house.
A bumper sticker with the usual tagline. Note the detail on the radiator!
