Do you ever go poking around in these old ruins?. Fab places..

Oh, there are plenty of lumber opperations going on here in East Texas. Lots of Yellow Pine timber is grown and harvested all around this area. Trucks are just better suited to the job these days. Much quicker from point A to point B.

I hate to snoop too much, the way insurance companys are these days, I would hate to mess up and get hurt on someones property without having permission to be there. :-/

This facility was built in the '40s by a man named McCrossin, it was an iron ore plant. It represent one of the few remaining vestiges of the "old" iron ore industry in the area. - Great photos, by the way.

I've always wondered what it was built for. Very unusal shape. Thanks for the info and for the visit!
