The Ammo Plant

This abandoned complex has been featured on the blog once before, almost a year and a half ago. I won't go too far into the history of it, since it's been covered before, and is also covered in great detail over at Abandoned. Two of my favorite photos ever taken came from here, so I only hesitated a bit when given a chance to photograph it again.

This trip took place on one of those rare warm and sunny days in the middle of winter. It snowed a few inches the week before, and it snowed again the week after; but 50f and sunny makes for a good Sunday afternoon spent outdoors. Of all the places shown on this website in the past, this one is my personal favorite, and the last visit I made (shown here) was the most memorable of all. Here are a few of the photos I took:

Looking out over the top of the massive complex.

Inside one of the first buildings entered.

Inside a building designed to pack ammunition in 1944, now empty and devoid of the machinery that was once used here.

What a typical building in the complex looks like*.

Another view of the same building.

One of the two coal fired power plants inside the complex; the first photo was taken from the roof of this building.

The sun had started to set by the time we had reached the power plant.

Much of the power plant was still seemingly intact and undamaged, despite being abandoned for decades.
