What appears to be a building once associated with King Elevator is now a defunct scuba company. To the right of the frame you can see how the concrete on the elevator is beginning to show its rebar.
Much of the milling equipment predated the mill itself, so I would not be surprised if this particular machine really dates to 1860.
There is a cool old air compressor in the corner of the powerhouse.
The sound of water running in the distance.
Before the clouds broke, I snapped this profile of the dumping control room and its spiral staircase. These are the colors that I dream in.
Much of the mill is wooden–even the larger chutes.
The corner of the original buildings still carry the Lemp logo!
I am not sure what this machine does, but I have a hunch that it husks and cleans the sugar beets as they come into the plant. It is certainly the biggest single piece of equipment in any of the mills.
