  • Balaclava Mill Built in 1855, at one time it was said to produce a million board feet of lumber per week. It was finally shut down in 1959 and the area is considered a ghost town.  I took the above image in a heavy rainstorm and the flood of turbulent water made me wonder whether the building was finally going to succumb to the elements.
