Back to Collinsville

Across the street from the Antiques Mall, or the former Collins Company that I featuring two days ago, sit the abandoned Powerhouse that was built in 1935 by the Collins Company employees to power the factory and factory housing.

 Inside the powerhouse revealed the large hook.  It was very ominous on this grey day in Collinsville.
In August of 1955 there was a flood of the Farmington River and the Powerhouse was the only structure left standing.  Not sure when it was abandoned.

  1. It must have been a powerful Powerhouse.

    No, I'd not like to stand under that giant hook.
