Taken 12/06 by Scannerman
Little Falls Gravel Plant, Herkimer County


'The Pierce Stone Company east of Little Falls began in 1921 and worked into the 1930s furnishing crushed stone for surfacing roads. The plant was built on an outcropping on an almost-vertical hillside. Huge rectangular silos were perched on concrete walls over two rail tracks; gravity-dump loading chutes filled 20 railroad hopper cars at once. Directly north of present-day Route 5 is the quarry where the raw rock came from.' - description from Scannerman.

Scannerman writes "This is one of the damdest things I've ever seen made out of concrete--what a nightmare is must have been to work on this thing, all by brute human and animal power, maybe with a steam crane... The above picture is looking down into the two west silos--for lack of a better term. A railroad spur ran underneath each silo, and 10 hopper cars would fit under each one. There is an identical set of silos on the other side of the building."

CharlieB writes that the last shot "is of another abandoned structure found within the barn. It too, is in good shape. I think it meets your criteria."

Unknown small structure off from Game Farm Road, Brownville, Jefferson County, as suggested by Eric H.  Looks like it may have been a bridge or small dam.  Anyone know?

Card Road, Jefferson County.  A barn goes with this but it looked like it was in use for cows and possibly hay or something like that so photos were not taken of that.  The lawn is mowed around the house but it looks abandoned.
