Amazing sites abandoned but not forgotten…

Fun and Interesting

Today’s buildings are tomorrows archaeology, but often when buildings are left to decay and ruin, it creates a snapshot in time. Often forgotten, a picture can capture that moment that otherwise is lost when developers move in to breath new life into a building…

    When oir coal fired plant closed, they tore it down. Only photos I know of were from the outside, don’t know of any from the inside.
    Some of us grew-up with that old plant down by the fishing pier, the warm water discharge attracted many fish over the years and never froze solid in winter.
    The area where it was when become a park in the future.
