The Eureka Mill, historically known as Sunnyside Mill, is now the gateway to Animas Forks.
This room on the top floor of one of the oldest buildings has seemingly not changed since it was adapted for employee use. Some sections of the hospital were adapted for staff to live in. Paying Patient Ward–where capable patients were separated from wards of the state.
The workshop sat below the main working floor and had serious power going to it.
A collapsing and unstable building.
At the extreme eastern end of the plant is a bank of modern concrete silos. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.
These tubes would bring cement to the top of the plant for storage in the silos.
Looking toward the power station at the edge of the explosives plant.
The power lines follow the street, down to the mineshaft. Everything revolved around the mine, it seemed.
This ornamental stair is cast iron and used to connect all floors of the Administration building. Now it connects the first and second floor, then the third and fourth floors, with a strange cinder block and drywall barrier separating the new and old sections of the building. Note the insulation on the floor to seal heat into the lower floors that were used as offices until the hospital closed. On the corners of the staircase are lions, on the corners of the suspended section of stair are down-hanging pineapples. Set in the stairs themselves are shield motifs with slate tops.
