In the Lime House, the sunset picked-up the last light of day to make this image. Lime is used in the beet sugar refinement process to reduce the acidity of the beet juice mixture.
The back door into the old distillery building. Not castle-like at all, sadly.
At sunrise the fog rose near the solvent recovery line. You can barely read the “XXX” warning.
The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus. The smaller elevator replaced an earlier smaller warehouse in 1926. Taken shortly after dawn. This one picture made the drive worth it, for me. Medium Format.
Shelves in in the coloring department, where hundreds of different mixer lids are splashed with hardened glass dyes. Color thanks to a yellow-tinted skylight.
Looking from the shaft room into the room where an electric hoist would be.
The main street of the ghost town is also the maintenance road for the BNSF line that bisects Colmor.
The stonework was done by a local handyman of sorts, who was also a guard at a nearby insane asylum. He did a great job, it seems to me.
The old mill (right) and power plant (left) with the new mill behind them.
