    This is a huge former glue factory located in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It has been empty since the late 70's or early 80's, and is basically wide open if you want to make the effort to go in. The building is huge, and is three stories tall, with a basement. There is a taller area that is no longer accessable due to removed catwalks. Also inside is a three story tall conveyer belt, that after you figure out the maze of stairs to reach the top, you'll find a pile of dead skin on top.

    Getting in used to be easier, but they have finally decided to close the gate on the barbed wire fence surrounding the building. I havn't been inside since they've done this, as I've probably been in the place 10 times, but I'm sure there has to be holes in the fence, or a way around it.

    Also on the site, there's tunnels that I've seen, but haven't explored at all, so I have no idea how extensive they are.

     Future Plans
    Oak Creek would like to raze the whole area and turn it into mixed-use luxury condos. Anybody whose been to Carrollville, though, knows that that plan wouldn't fit in with the blue collar backwater vibe it's got right now. But it is prime lakefront property, albeit insanely polluted prime lakefront property.
