Exploring Benson Mines

  • Overgrown

  • Entrance

    Entrance to the facility - and my car!

  • Outside

    The office/bathroom is inside this building, and the first building in the album is visible through the trees in the background.

  • Exit (Entrance)
  • Ore Silos

    Rusting silo between concrete silos for holding iron ore. It looked like there was more machinery on top of the silos that had rusted away and collapsed.

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!
