    Mill Town

    There's this abandoned mill town 10 or so miles from my parent's house. It was a hosiery mill, and like most old mill towns the factory was powered by water. There's a dam behind the factory. The employees lived in houses all around the factory--there was a church and a general...

    Abandon places are fun. You can play inside them. Run around but also be careful the stairs might break. When I look at abandon houses I think of what it used to be back in 1980.
