Exploring Benson Mines

  • Outside

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

  • Transformer Gauge

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

  • Bathroom and Sink

    Likely decimated by vandals.

  • Garage Door

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

  • 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!
