    Even though the cabinets have been gutted, the pumps and piping are still on the lower part of the pumphouse. There isn't a window left in the place. Because of its proximity to a major booze cruise thoroughfare, vandals have knocked every window out of it.

    Nothing more than a pumphouse at the base of a small dam. Supplied water for the demands of the separation process. Dam and pumphouse remain. Property is posted, the owner was not on the posted tag.
