we recently road tripped to alabama with florence and muscle shoals as our destination. one day we headed out of town to a small town called sheffield, alabama. it appeared that sheffield was an old railroad and industry town filled with tons of deserted factories and buildings to explore. one building that caught my eye....all of the way across town was this mill. it is an active lumber mill that was covered with tin with the most beautiful patina.
