I came across this lonely old building in the woods close to the Kilby Museum in Harrison Mills B.C. this week and was curious about its past. I have been told that it was an Old Mill but I am still awaiting clarification about this. Abandoned and broken, at one time, its builders took care to provide gentle arches to the door and window frames and thick cement walls constructed to withstand the tests of time.
Today, more than a 100 years later the interior walls have been tagged by modern artists/vandals and the site is overgrown as it returns once again to nature.
This building was connected to the Harrison River and these old pylons still stand like a forest of totems bearing witness.
