This place was without a doubt my favorite non-hospital location I've ever explored. I tried to narrow these photos down to 20 or less, but I couldn't quite do it. I thought some of these looked better in B&W; the light conditions were challenging in much of the place, so some of the colors just came out weird.

Now that the asbestos is out and the owners have secured a demolition permit, it's anyone's guess as to how long this treasure will still be around. Scrappers stealing copper flashing from the roof dome have done a decent job of letting in the elements and getting the process started of rendering the place too decayed to save.

1. The first place we saw was actually the roof.

2. Parts of it looked more like heron habitat than asphalt jungle.

4. This was the first roof I've ever seen that it was actually possible to get lost on.

5. Inside was a fascinating tangle of pipes, conduits, hoppers, ducts, and walkways.

6. The entire place had been abated of asbestos, which must have been a truly massive undertaking. The areas it was removed from are still coated in the encapsulant that the abatement crews spray to contain any remaining fibers before they clear the area.

7. All day we found ourselves wishing we had more of a clue as to what all of this stuff actually was.

8. A rack of parts.

9. The OSHA compliance dork part of me is pretty sure that this doesn't actually qualify as a confined space.

10. Eventually, we emerged into the cavernous, jawdropping expanse of the turbine hall.

15. Every aspect and corner of this place was amazing to behold.

16. A dark room in the "office" area of the building.

17. Somewhere around here was where the old hospital section of the plant was located.

18. Coal conveyors atop the roof.
