Another one where I had to call in a friend of a friend to get me inside but been having good luck this year so why stop here ?
This location is on Mullin Avenue in Quincy. Its locked up tight but there is absolutely nothing inside.
its history is not very long. Built in 1902 to compress air to the men that quarried the Quincy granite. Was a lot more effective than steam. So the compressed air went up the granite incline up to the jackhammers and helped pave the way for Quincy granite to be cut and shipped all over the world.
The war came and the United States needed Steel. So the machinery was taken out of the compressor building and the building was turned into a private residence. They moved out in the 70's and a paving company took over and converted the space to their offices.
They moved out and that allowed the MDC police in the 1990's to store their records here. Lastly there was a Quincy Quarries museum here in the early 2000's but could no longer afford to heat the building. They moved out and it has since sat vacant. Hurricane Sandy ripped a huge hole in the roof and the building now sits and rots away.
Enjoy the photos.
