I have managed a property for almost 2 years that was most recently a swap meet but was just shut down and is now being developed into residences. Kinda sad because the building is really pretty cool.... it has two secret walk in vaults, secret rooms, etc. etc. Anyway, in all my years of managing property I have never run across a building like this. It was clearly a processing/manufacturing plant at some point but I always felt the building was purpose built for something unique.
So awhile back I was inspecting the parking lot when I noticed this:
What are the chances? I was so excited that I did a bit more research and came up with some interesting (probably only to me) info on the site that I will share on this thread.
Not sure why but while I was researching the site I kinda became protective over the plaque and came up with an idea. Since developments sometimes require the inclusion of a public art project or historic/cultural interpretation, I mentioned to the owner that he should save the plaque and include it somehow in the new project. He is onboard and is figuring out a way to include it in the project!
