As there do seem to be a mixture of both old buildings that are intact and ones that are falling down in this thread how about a building from 1788 that is not falling down.

Laura Place in Bath, UK



Admittedly not exactly special as a lot of Bath (and Edinburgh) looks like this

Perhaps someone can shed light on what this structure is?

Its near the center of the Adirondack Park in NY. I *think* it was a coke oven that got re-purposed into something else and then abandoned?

Two pictures ago..

That is the old smelter in Tahawus. Lots of interesting history there, if you walked down to the river behind the "chimney" you would have found enormous pistons and a crankshaft which were turned by a waterwheel to blow air into the smelter. One year we rode our mtn. bikes down to the old mine area and walked thru all the old buildings we could, like a ghost town. I heard the whole complex was demolished a few years ago.

Reading the history behind the land it's amazing how advance they were at the time they build this . The lake , river and canal system is wild.
