Update: I went back and revisited the site in the spring of 2021.
A giant factory came into view, across a vacant lot which seems to have been part of the company grounds.
The stunning Leschen Wire Rope Company, which later moved to St. Joseph and now seems to be largely defunct, once filled these buildings with hundreds of workers, if not thousands.
The buildings show the influence of the Beaux Arts, and demonstrate how even industrial complexes could be elegant.
The company published a book one hundred years ago about their business.
