Rubber Factory...

So early Sunday morning I was supposed to meet a buddy of mine to go take pictures of this rubber factory. So I get at the meeting spot and about 5 minutes after we were supposed to meet he texts me saying he can't make it because his girlfriend is sick and needs to take care of her. So I say fine I understand. Now this place isn't super far from my house or anything but I don't wake up early on Sunday for no reason. So alone I decided I would at least go walk around the place and see what they had boarded up a couple months ago. So I get there and look around and climb around back and find a way in. So once I was in I figured I should snap a couple pictures to make it worthwhile. Long story short 2 hours later I had just gone through the whole place by myself. It was super creepy at first but after a while you get so occupied you don't even notice. I actually saw some of the most beautiful spots I have ever seen any place in this old rotten hell hole. This place was a rubber factory that made tires for trailers and smaller things like that. It's been closed forever and doesn't have anything factory related inside. For a while the space was rented out to artists who left a bunch of weird stuff behind. However about 4 months ago they came and bricked up a lot of windows and put boards over others so now this place is super dark in some spots.

8. There used to be a lot of photos all over and the swing had a cinder block on it. It looks like someone has cleaned this room out some...

12. It appears that the newer brick building may have been built around an older 1800s building. The 1800s portion of it is falling apart all over. This giant hole was like 2 little holes just a couple months ago.

18. This room was amazing with tons of water drops falling from the ceiling and splashing down into pools. Unfortunately pictures do not really do that justice. It also sounded pretty cool in here as well...


19. They put tons of tarps up to catch water. Good luck...
