OMG! What have we done? Thanks to you guys, our company is growing and we’ve outgrown our cramped little New Albany office. We’ve been on a quest for the perfect office space, but we just haven’t been able to find anything that suits us. Our needs, as simple as they are, have been very difficult to meet. We’re not the new shiny office kind of folks. Carpeting, cubicles, and drop ceilings just aren’t our style. We need vintage, authentic, and industrial. A space that reflects who we are and what we stand for – timeless design, quality, creativity, and authenticity.
Then, one day while I was out riding around on my motorcycle through forgotten places and roads rarely traveled, I stumbled across this gem – a true diamond in the rough. It’s an abandoned Feed Mill. It was built around 1928 and operated until 1995. It has been abandoned ever since. It sits right on the tracks of the B&O Railroad, and sees trains twice a day. It’s overgrown, dark, smelly, filthy, and absolutely beautiful. We immediately fell in love with the building (which still contains much of the original equipment), and we felt compelled to save it from further deterioration or demolition.
We researched and contacted the current owner, the same family that operated the mill years ago. The property was not on the market, but they were thrilled to hear that we were interested in it with the intent of restoring the old mill. It didn’t take long for us to strike a deal. So this is our blank canvas – a long way away from the masterpiece we are picturing in our minds. However, it is our own little piece of Middle America, and we are pleased to share it with you.
