East Tennessee Paper Mill

There's much more to see, but so much has been demolished. I'd like to go back at a time less conducive to the slithery-bitey critters.

I took a three day moto-camping trip and decided to hit a spot I had fond google-sploring. I'm assuming this small building was a central office of some sort.







About the only other things still standing are this large building and two silos.













There is a loading pier out into the river, I imagine it was for chemicals by the construction.





I went to explore the building across the tracks, which I think may have been some sort of factory medical or training facility.





And then I seem to have disturbed a dreaded diamond-backed-cobra-moccasin... I wasn't within striking distance,, but the snake was rattling to warn me off. I slowly backed away and went on my way. I really would like to go back during a less snakey season.

Some random shots from around the grounds...

Between the plant growth, and an active adjacent site, I didn't get to the far end of the facility which looks to have a row of in ground storage tanks. The whole place is littered with demolition debris and various metal bits.

^Agreed, looks like a nice spot to poke around, too bad about the snakes, I'm curious what's in that building, good thing you were attentive though. Thankfully never had an encounter with any.

What a great find! The picture where you had the river in view --- oh my feet were ITCHING to jump off that structure into the water. I'm surprised no one was there doing just that! Isn't that a southern right of passage? Jumping in the water hole/river?

Wow. I am looking for not too distant places to check out. Would you be willing to privately share the location?

Please also let me know if such a request is inappropriate. I don't think I found anything directly related in the rookie forums, but I always worry that I may have missed something that everyone already knows. Thank you!

Nothing wrong with asking.

By sending a PM.

UER is a resource but don't feel bad if some members aren't forthcoming with info. Best plan is to meet some locals.

Thank you. I actually did read something sort of related to asking for locations in the rookie forum right after posting that last one. Sorry. :/

I appreciate the advice!

great find. I was hoping for more interiors and machinery but that is how things go.
