Thanks Brent. There are tons of abandon mills in New England. Most of them died out in the 1950s and 1960s. A lot of manufacturing went down south at this time, and later went overseas. The heyday for mills in New England was 19th century and early 20th.
As for that building, maybe a dairy farm? Livestock on the bottom floor, storage up top. I didn't get close enough to get a good look. I just thought it looked visually stimulating. It does have those two rusted silos attached and this area is very rural. Zoning is nonexistent here. It could be a lot of things. There was a pale colored house right next to that shell that I cut out of the shot. I assumed it was the owner's house. I thought if you lived there how do you keep your kids from exploring that dangerous old building?
