I love the ghost sign across these two elevators, originally built as Superior Elevator. It’s looking pretty rough.
A window for light and air pokes above the big arch in the hallway. Most of the interior ceilings were broad brick archways.
After a short rainfall douses the mill in downtown Fergus Falls, the river next to the brick walls swells and the sounds of water overtakes the echos of the nearby bars. Reflections are on the foundation of the former distribution and rail building.
Judging from old pictures and maps, raw ore was dumped through these hatches, stamped into a rough powder, and hastily sorted before sending the best ore to the mill. Mills charged by tons of rock sent to them, so it did not pay to send them obvious tails.
The crumbling building barely contained the colors inside of it.
The laundry building, where many of the tunnels came to an end. It looks very East Coast industrial to me.
When Nopeming was affiliated with local farms, it often slaughtered its own livestock. This is the part of the hospital where food would be prepped, below the stage in the Service Building.
Although it’s difficult to spot at first, there is a traveling mini crane down the way about the three windows. This was installed to service all of the fabrication machines that would be in this section.
