    So 'Paradise' by John Prine was historically based.

    Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
    And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
    Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
    Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man
    pratered and NxtGoRnd like this.

    Absolutely. In fact, for a (very) short time I was employed at the Paradise Fossil Plant during an asbestos removal. I took air samples to ensure the asbestos fibers were contained. The road going past is named "John Prine Highway".

    Thanks... Lots of coal in Indiana, too. Home of Amax IIRC.

    Got this out for a ride over the week-end.... an old grist mill. Not sure when it was built, but guessing late 1800s?
    I talked to the owners earlier in the year.... most of the old equipment is still in there!
    They would like to restore the building to some degree... but as always.... will take a boatload of $$$$

    If you look for it on google maps, the old abandoned prison in Paradise is visible on google earth as well. That song is 100% based on real life. It's a damn good one.
