The bottom of the tailings boom is rotten. In days when the dredge, floated, gangways connected it to shore, it seemed. You can see the size of the pontoons under the boat here.
Kat’s pretty cool.
A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.
A teeter totter sits in front of the Memorial Building.
Furnace #6; its catwalk and tapway. Note the lever-operated gutter-blockers.
A huge vent looks like it built in a hurry. There was actually very little in the way of bits of machinery left over… I am guessing almost anything of value was scrapped in the 1990s.
A broken-down wooden grain chute.
Power-up to cool down… would have been nice on the hot day I climbed on top of this machine.
Designed by Taylor himself, the spring house was the site of many parties in its day. You can imagine sipping fresh-tapped whiskey here with your Sunday clothes with soft music and the sounds of the river mixing in the background. Note the key-hole-shaped spring hole.
