The back wall of the ballroom, showing water-warped floors.
A bunk room, minus the bunks.
Fire doors separate the buildings.
The warped floors caught my eye in this room too–a symptom of turning off heat and not patching a leaking roof in the midwest.
The shaft of Prize Mine in the abandoned building. Stay away!
This is one of the biggest warps I’ve ever found in a wooden factory floor hasn’t broken yet. When you stand on it, it make a very loud popping sound as the boards shift. The poster on the pillar near the left side of the frame advertises recreational boating, presumably to the factory workers who left this floor in the early 1980s.
Moisture and temperature changes have hoisted the wooden floors of the first floor classrooms.
In the nurses’ dormitories, beds, couches and chairs still sit. It’s unclear whether these are remnants of the homeless shelter in the 80s or the actual nurses.
I found a historical photo of this room showing 10-foot high machines with wires hanging by the mile from looms and schematic charts.
