Over the weekend the wife and I went back to a place we found last Fall. Its the ruins of what was once the world's largest cement plant (1900-1907). It was located just outside of Baldwin, MI.
Some of it looks kind of Romanesque with it's coved arches. I have several more pics too.
Rattler, Nice photos, it sure looked cold! You're right, it does look like Roman architecture. The first photo looks like it's got an Ionic column capital laying on the ground.
It was also nice to see birch trees growing in the wild again, it's been a long time.
Thanks for sharing.
Great pictures, Rattler. Wish I wsa there too....Speedy
It was in the 50s Sat. so it was pretty decent out. THat part of the state had more snow than us and we are just a little North of them but @ 100 miles East.
I wasn't crazy about there being snow still but I think it showed off the buidlings better in the pics. I know if we go again it would have to be within a month or so becuase it will get pretty overgrown in the Summer.
I have some close-ups of the items that were laying by those columns. I will post more when I get a chance.
Loved the pics!!!! Very Romanesque looking!!!
Those a great shots.So this was a cement plant? That makes me think of the remains of the vacated lime plant in Lime, Oregon which is right off the highway.

I found out there is a book about the plant. But of course its very rare and hard to find. I would like to see a map or blueprint of the layout and process of it.
