Columbia Mills is located in Minetto, NY, south of
the city of Oswego. I was shown here two days before graduation by V. I
had never been in Minetto before. The factory here looked like a fascinating
exploration project, but I had not been inside. Adjacent to it were smaller
buildings that looked like apartments for factory workers. All of which
were vandalized, one of them had been reduced to its shell by a fire. The mill was
demolished recently to make way for senior housing. The apartment building
depicted here is currently being restored as a private home not open to
visitors. The site is no longer abandoned and has a wonderful owner who
recognizes the importance of preserving such a place.
