These pictures are from the site of the Chickasaw Ordnance Works factory. It was built solely to support the war effort at the time. Initially it was constructed by DuPont for the British goverment, with all output going to them them. Construction started around June 1940 and workers were there 24/7 to have it running by early 1941. They also expanded as they operated. In 1942 the US Army took over the plant (and output) from DuPont and operations ran 24/7 for several years initially making gun powder, TNT, DNT, high explosives, etc to support the war effort. Once the war was over, the plant was closed and "mostly" destroyed. Supposedly it was to hard to convert the buildings to civilian use because of the chemicals used there, so they leveled the buildings but left many foundations and concrete structures in the area. The woods are just littered with concrete, building remains, concrete stands, roads, etc. People have built houses in the area and just live among part of the ruins.

This was more a scouting trip since it was snowing , cloudy, cold and windy. I plan on going back on a warmer sunny day to explore more.

I assume these were to hold up tanks of some sort.

Stacks left. Must have been a tall building judging by how tall the upper inlet was.

Base of one of the stacks.

Other side...I just liked the robot.

Area around the stacks

Supposedly some underground tunnels here also, I assume these go there.

This was the only building still standing I saw, It appears to be a trash room judging by the painted labels at the top.

This is the back of the building. It had two rooms, the one above and one with some metal structures and what appeared to be a control panel for something.

There rest of the pictures I took that day are dumped here if interested.

Looks like a great place to explore!

I have no idea what this was, but I found it on the Fort Drum, NY installation, miles from anything.

Although not abandoned this old metal working factory is very dilapidated and soon to be renovated thanks to a local campaign so it wasn't turned in to modern flats

Couldn't quite get centered, because of a fence. I was drawn to the lines.

This is an abandoned train car. The floor was so mushy I couldn't go in. See the wood stove in the back?? Reminded me of the boxcar children book series.

Thank you all very much.

Some mornings you just want to shoot and shoot, but the light changes so fast!

You must know about that Todd, with all your night shoots.
