Lonanconing Silk Mill

A week and a half ago I traveled to the Lonaconing Silk Mill in Lonaconing, Maryland (this is about as far west as you can go in Maryland). I traveled with a photography group led by a very talented photographer, Denise Ippolito. I had seen some images in the past and my hopes were that the mill would still have some equipment in place. Well, I can tell you my expectations were more than met. The 4+ hour drive was more than worth it. Nature’s elements are starting to penetrate the building. The gentleman who owns the facility, Herb, is trying to figure out a way to save the structure.  The last time it was in operation was 1957.
