The Remnants Of This Abandoned WWII Factory In Minnesota Are Hauntingly Beautiful

In Dakota County, tucked away in the fields of Rosemount, you can find a plethora of abandoned structures that were originally part of a WWII factory, once known as Gopher Ordnance Works. With the help of blogger Kyle Ensrude, we got an inside look at the eerie remains.

A reminder, most of the UMore Park land is private, so be sure to seek permission before visiting. What other abandoned places have you found in Minnesota?
