From Lida Rose (via Flickr.com): "I know exactly where this is and have seen it slowly deteriorate over the last 20 years. Too bad."

From oldpartsman1 (via Flickr.com): "Nice find!"
From PantherPhotography (via Flickr.com): "It's always sad to see houses fall down. Like the one on my great papa's land. I'll be so sad when it falls. You always wonder what it looked like when it was first built."

Poor's Island Papermill ruins

Jack S writes "This is a carthage grinder. It was used to grind pulpwood into wood pulp in a papermill. The 'rollers' that you see in the abandoned paper mill pictures were inside this castiron machine. Wood was loaded in the pockets as seen on the left, the door was closed and the lever pulled to actuate the hydraulic cylinder which forced the wood against the grind stone. Water was sprayed against the stone to keep the wood from burning. Wood and water mixed, came out the bottom and was called slush, this went through a series of screens to remove slivers, then to the beaters to make the fibers finer, then onto the paper machine. If only wood fiber was used it was a solid wood sheet; an example of that would be the old fashioned milk bottle caps. For other sheets it was mixed with other fibers, chemicals, dies, and waste paper."

Scannerman contacted the town of Dekalb historian; Virginia Fischer, who wrote: "The location of the long low building was once the Borden Milk plant. When Paul Stevens used the building as a Slaughter House, the building next to it [the building in the photo above as well as the next photo] was built for his office building and is not used now. The long building is now James Stiles used auto parts."

On 8/1/12 Scott D. writes "It's a shame that this house appears this way today. I know the family of the last owners. They are successful dairymen today. I think another time would have found them still there and successful, just as they are today. They have a tremendous family support and value system."
On3/7/13 Eric writes "I have seen this place deteriorating for 25+ years and no one has done anything with it. It appears to have been quite a nice house in its day. Does anyone have any info about who owned it and what that person did for a living? Thanks Eric."
