The back door into the old distillery building. Not castle-like at all, sadly.
The top three floors were removed from the top of the Temple Opera Block (right). If you have a sharp eye, you can see the outlines of some of the old floors on the shared wall of the Orpheum (left). For a time, the front of the building held a bus stop.
The front of the power plant (right), the distillery itself (center), and the regaling house (left).
Looking between the asbestos house and mineral (lime) house.

Gunnell Mine was large and probably included a small stamp mill.
