Remains of old mill outside of Herrings
There are a number of buildings and ruins, but it is well grown over and surrounded by fencing so I could not get very good shots.

Note - much of the brush has now been cleared, see this page for clearer pictures.

A very old house between Copenhagen and Carthage, on Route 12
The barn seemed to be much newer and partially in use and well-kept, possibly by local Amish?

Webmaster note - I belive this was a reflection off the window of the car I took this through.

Taken in late 1990's
Flooded remains of old mine, White Rock Quarry, between Natural Bridge and old Lewisburg.  Called Quarry Pond.
In the Fall of 1906 the lime quarry had been in use for a number of years and had been excavated to sixty feet. While more digging was being done a wall fell, revealing an opening ten feet wide and four feet tall and twenty feet deep. The hole was filled with giant calcite crystals, some as large as nine feet tall, the largest ever found. New York State's assistant state geologist was contacted and a project was put together to careful remove the crystals and move them to Albany, where they were displayed in the New York State Museumís Crystal Cave exhibit. During the late 1930's the mining had dug well below the water table and the mine was quickly flooded with water. In more modern times Lewis County rescue divers went to the quarry to practice their skills, and found the opening of the Crystal Cave, as well as a wooden platform inside it - probably used to carefully remove the crystals for shipping to Albany. They also found the remains of an old car, a flywheel for a steam shovel, a system of railroad tracks, and a railroad car.  This location is now a protected historic site.

From cshym74 (via Flickr.com): "Good shot of rural decay..."
From elisabethshroyer (via Flickr.com): "Awesome building!"
From d. force: "This was a schoolhouse, my mother who was born in 1932 attended this school when she was a child. I grew up in this town named Spragueville."
On 6/29/12 Key writes "I don't believe the old school house was ever a church. My neighbor went to school there back in the late 20's and 30's."
