Near the old slag dump there are the remains of the pouring buckets that received the molten steel from the US Steel blast furnaces, filled to the brim with pig iron. They must be incredibly heavy!
Furnace #7, as seen from #6’s catwalks. Cue morning fog.
Trees by the beautiful Nurse’s Cottage above and behind the Kirkbride. One side looks out over farmland while the other faces the back of the hospital grounds. As of 2014, the city is allowing artists to rent spaces inside.
A shuttered house at the end of the block doesn’t even have boards on it anymore.

One of the covered rail loading docks. All of them were overgrown and rust-clad.
Looking through skylights of the payroll office toward the Cheratte No.1’s tower. This is where workers would wait in line to receive pay, surrounded by the mine workings.
The tangled telegraph lines between Mitchell and the engine house keep the old pole from topping in the wind.
This building had the rusty remains of a few mattresses, likely used in the 1940s when this site was last occupied.
