Urban Exploring

This adventure was at a distillery that was abandoned over 25 years ago. The twenty-some buildings that once distilled & packaged whiskey were locked up and left alone to crumble. Almost thirty years later, nature has taken back parts of it and there is some seriously cool exploring to be had.

Not all of the buildings are open, but a few are. Remnants of the past included old bottling machines, labels, calendars, time punches and instruction manuals.. the list goes on and on.

Nature coming back..

Lonely chairs in a dark & empty warehouse.

Disclaimer: Not desiring to do anything in the wrong, I researched this place and the surrounding grounds heavily before we went. To the best of my knowledge, I am fairly certain the park is now owned by the State Game Lands. At least that's what I gathered from looking at maps and reading a few things. We didn't pass any no trespassing signs, and we didn't do anything except take a few photos and wander around. Happy exploring!

  1. Very fun! I'm a bit amazed...and happy...that this was open to explore. I know safety needs to come first, but so many interesting places are closed to the public.
