First off for avoidance of any doubt I will say this was a permission visit, as are all visits to Lonaconing Silk Mill. The cost of the visit contributes to the never-ending battle of trying to keep this amazing place in one piece, the roof is getting very bad in places and without people's contributions one more harsh winter will spell the end for this place - as Herb, the owner, told us 'as soon as the roof falls in I sell the place'. A brief history - This is the last intact silk mill in the entire United States, it's the most incredible industrial time capsule I have ever seen and one of the most amazing locations I have ever photographed. If you ever find yourself in America, GO HERE. It sat in my top three 'most wanted' sites for years, and hopefully you will be able to see why.
