USA American Ice Factory Baltimore Sept '14

Recommended Posts

This is a little mini-report more than anything

;)

After I was done around DC I headed off northwards to Baltimore to meet up with a contact I'd made on an American forum for the night. I arrived that evening and instead of us sitting around twiddling our thumbs he suggested we go out for a quick explore, now I don't normally like exploring in the dark but who was I to say no...

It's fair to say this location isn't in the best part of Baltimore, indeed it's a wonder we didn't get shot or stabbed just for walking down the street! It was, as expected, very dark inside the factory and it is literally right on the street level with the pavement so very easy to attract attention to oneself but we got away with it.

I tried to find history on the American Ice Co. but can't find too much, I'm led to believe they went hand-in-hand with the cold storage warehouses all over America. This one has seen better days but for a little mooch before I got into the really meaty locations it was fun.

      History
      This factory was opened in 1900 and made cardboard out of straw, in that time this product was very popular so 8 years later the made another factory next to the other one.
      In 1968 the factory closed due to competition from abroad, after the factory was closed it was sold off to a men who repaired and sold off machines. The new owner only did nothing about maintenance of the old factory so the factory complex decayed rapidly. in 2005 the original factory was demolished and the other factory was luckily protected as a monument. Later in 2009 the restoration began on the still standing factory. 6 years later the company who began with the restoration began to have financial troubles so the factory was abandoned again. After being abandoned for 1 year the factory was bought on a auction for an incredible low price, after that the restoration was back on track again.

      We went on a Sunday so the workers waren't working on the building. When we got there, there was a door opened so we could enter the beautiful old factory building. The highlight of the building was the old Turbine and the old ovens.

      It's been a while since I've posted anything. I though I would share something really cool, this is the Kenosha Theater. I have a thing for old movie palaces and I could not pass this up especially since I live pretty close to it. It technically isn't abandoned since a man owns it, but he dosen't have the money to fix it so it sits in it's abandoed state. I will also add that he does give tours to anyone. That's all I have to say so enjoy the decay.
