Part of my great grand fathers furniture factory built in 1932. When he died in 1955, he left the the company to his grandsons ( my father and his 3 brothers). There father ran the company until the boys were old enough to take over in the mid 70's. In the early 90's it was decided that the old factory building was no longer adequate and construction began on a newer more modern facility right down the road. The original factory was abandoned with the exception of a few of the warehouses that would be used for storage. Over time the factory has fallen into such disrepair that it could no longer serve a purpose. Today, they are in the process of demolishing it, salvaging what they can.

The color image on top of the building is a photograph of the hunting land my great grandfather bought after building this factory. The land is still in the family.
