Exploring Benson Mines

  • Worker's Desk
  • Garage Door

    Outside view of another building showing the decay of the area.

  • Machine Shop

    Judging from the abundance of 440 volt hookups in the building, this likely was some sort of machine shop.

  • Transformer Gauge

    The guts of the transformer were missing, probably stolen by copper thieves.

  • Another office.

    Some sort of office area, completely rotted out.

Benson Mines is a long-abandoned iron mine near Watertown, NY. The mine was shut down in 1978 and the buildings and have been completely abandoned ever since. Abandoned man-made structures are my favorite to take pictures of, so I couldn't resist exploring!
