I'd say there are a few feet of floor space, though most of it slopes down towards the back and is crumbling. If you're in town, go to the basket factory and take the road behind it. Park at the little park down the road and walk along Myrtle Drive until you see an over-grown road branching off to the left.
Be prepared to battle some pretty good brush to get to the site.

  •  Interesting Features
    This place is really two stories. There are two stair ways leading down behind the main structure. There's also another building across the pond. It looks like a pump house or something, though there isn't much left there. Given it's location, I think it was an old sawmill.

    I don't have much history on this building, other than the engraving inside. Everyone I talked to who I knew in town couldn't tell me anything about it.
