Abandoned Factory, East St. Louis

I continued down the hill and entered a neighborhood off of St. Clair Avenue. I can imagine a century ago, men would walk these sidewalks from nearby houses, and work in the factory.
I have no idea what the factory was, or when it closed, but the relatively new looking office wing (not pictured) suggests it only closed a decade or so ago.


  1. This place is right near our family business. There are some great urban ruins down in that area.

  2. There is a building at 5th and St. Louis (right down the track from the 5th and Missouri MEtro station) that looks like an old hall or an old industrial building of some kind. Haven't been able to learn anything about it though.

    1. I think you're referring to this:
