I spied this old factory years ago, but I finally got up close a weekend ago. The smokestack is very distinctive-not just your old run-of-the-mill pile of brick.
According to the Sanborn Maps, this was the American Tobacco Company. I don’t like Wikipedia, as it can be sabotaged so easily, but I did find some interesting facts about the company. See it from the air here.
Sadly, the factory is losing its urban context, as McRee Town is swept away for Botanical Heights, but much of the fabric is still standing in this area.
