  1. Almost all the pictures I have of old falling down barns have since been renovated. The old mills were converted to senior housing or a business/shopping venue — or burned down. These days, they are knocking down the old wooden mills, but if it was built of stone or brick, it has been renovated for some other use. Many of those old mills are really quite beautiful with carved mahogany interiors and beautiful stonework. They make great apartments and have years long waiting lists.

    So, all my pictures of years old. None of those buildings are still standing in the condition they were when I took the photos. One was bulldozed. All the others have been renovated or converted.

    All of these places looked like your buildings, but I guess the value of old barns exceeds the repair costs.


  2. Great idea for shots and, of course, all beautifully taken. The recycler in me sees potential of another kind and the old power station is less hazardous if it was dismantled. But I don’t know if anyone does that.


    • There are plans on recycling it and cleaning up that area, and making a part and riverside area, it just hasn’t happened yet.


    • It’s been shut down ever since we moved here. I really don’t know the history. There was also a paper plant there, they maybe connected somehow. 😀 😀

  3. Abandoned buildings definitely make interesting photography subjects. The first photo above is the one of yours I liked best! From the front, it’s not too bad, but from the other side, it looks like someone ran into it with their car!


  4. These are all fascinating photos and beautiful in their way. The power station is very intriguing. I suppose it will just fall down one day.


  5. Woah, those are some pretty scary buildings. That poor house. Sadly, I’ve seen houses that bad in which people lived. No barns with people in them. II sometimes forget about the long-term effects of rain on Oregonian buildings. You never see ANY moss on my old barn pictures. Sorry, I’m super late with my entry, but this topic just called me. I’ll do this week’s story, which I’ve been looking forward to for weeks either Thursday or Sat. Have a great rest of your week. 🙂
