    i would bring a dust mask, the amount of stray fibreglass in the air makes me leave with a scratchy throat everytime.
     History
    This plant is NOT in north tonawanda. I live here. I know.


    Closed in the early 90's as far as i can tell, huge barrels labeled for different types of acid. Im still trying to figure out exactlly what they made here.

    -Edit-
    The plant, which first opened in 1911, closed in 1992 and its owner has since been through two bankruptcy proceedings, leaving 860,000-square-feet of buildings on 46 acres in a very deteriorated condition.
    Spaulding began operations in Tonawanda in 1873 and operated under the name Spaulding Fibre until 1988. Spaulding Composites Co. operated the plant until its shutdown in late 1992.
