  • See a map of this location
  •  Hazards
  • unsafe flooring
  • water
  •  Interesting Features
    Various degrees of refurbishment inside. You can walk through one room which is framed and has new floor, into a hall that has a collpased stairwell. The attic has really expensive skylights. There are some rooms wired with construction electric hookups. Really strange. Not an unbroken window in the place. No artifacts except for some old power generating/water works in the basement.
     Security Measures
  • Close proximity to active buildings makes unnoticed entry by day difficult, and open floor architecture makes flash at night risky. You can easily be seen from the road, which is 10 feet from the windows.
  •  Historical Dates
    Built: 1873
    Closed: 0
     Required Equipment
  • gloves
  • long pants / sleeves
  •  Recommended Equipment

    This was a textile mill built in the late 1873 and completed in 1928.
