Digging through archives of officially-listed ghost towns can be time consuming, but every once in a while you'll come across something intriguing. This small complex is one of the two buildings in its former town, both of which are abandoned. It is quite far from any major urban areas, which might explain why the interiors have been left untouched by scrappers during its decades of decay. While it is a fascinating location, its structure is unfortunately in very poor shape. In due time, this final relic of a vanished community will experience the same sad fate as the people and memories it once contained.

Great spot and gorgeous photos as always. Is this one local-ish or are you traveling again?
