  • No Entrance

    Back door to the machine shop.

  • Another office.

    Some sort of office area, completely rotted out.

  • Abandoned Excavator's Engine
  • Entrance

    Entrance to the facility - and my car!

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!
