    Simkins Paper Industries Mill, also known as the Thistle Mill. Changed hands several times during its life, first as a cotton-weaving plant for making sails, then as a paper printing/processing plant. It was fire prone, and in 2003 a fire caused it to close its doors for good. It has its own power generating station directly across the river from it, looks like it's connected with a catwalk or small bridge, but you could always just cross the river on the regular car bridge. The Property was on sale back in 2008, but a state report seemed to indicate that cleanup may still be underway at this point.
