Downtown Kershaw Abandoned Building Study

While recently traveling the back roads of the South Carolina Midlands, I took time to explore the downtown area of Kershaw. You can bet older small towns, off the beaten path, will usually have some interesting old or abandoned structures to photograph. Along E Marion St., I found a string of cool abandoned brick buildings to capture.

Smokestack Landmark

This old building is near downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  It’s large smokestack catches your eye from Highway 52.   One afternoon I decided to take the nearest exit and have a look.  The location has a lot of character and photographic opportunities. In addition to the smokestack, the facility has an old railroad trestle and tracks adjacent to the main building.  There is also a large iron structure supporting what may have been a water tank.

I’m pretty sure this is an old Sara Lee textile facility.  Thus far I have been unable to find any history online.  Hopefully, I’ll have more background information on this great location in a future post.  I’m excited about the great architectural features, shapes and textures in this first set of images.  Hope you enjoy as well.
