 Overview
 Description
Old building along Eighteen Mile Creek. Some fairly decent architecture along with two "towers" still standing. It seems like the locals use the place as an "evening hangout" or something; since we saw a few different people there at different times aimlessly wandering around (don't think they were other explorers).

     History
    From what I learned from other sites, apparently it started out as a paper mill, then an asbestos factory, and eventually a portion was rented for making cabinets and then that was it...

     Future Plans
    I guess (from what I learned) they want to tear it down and turn it into a park.
