One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
The newer tunnels were fitted with these fluorescent lights, although some skylights (block glass embedded in skywalks) let in some natural light during the day.
The pits have long since been filled so the roundhouse could be used for storage.
A damaged roof channeled rain onto the adobe walls, cutting them in half. In the distance, a preserved house and the ruins of the Colmor School.
The nurse’s station on this floor, a ward still in its original design, featured a half-door where patients could get their medicine. Portra 160.
The first floor hallway between conference rooms and the diesel lab at the center of the facility
I revisited the mill years after my documentary. Now it is even more destroyed and surrounded by new fences.
My favorite shot of the 17-story Art Deco office tower attached to the train station.
The concrete annex elevator had interesting graffiti. Much of it from the 1980s and 1990s.
