What This Drone Footage Captured At This Abandoned Minnesota Mill Is Truly Grim

Minnesota is full of hauntingly beautiful abandoned places, particularly mills. This mill in Minneapolis is known in the area for its massive size and the stories of trespassers who have been injured and even died exploring the ruins. Past developers have had issues determining what to do with the space, which has been vacant since 1971 when the circa 1890s mill, named for businessman William H. Fruen, closed.

What abandoned places in MN do you think should be explored by drone next?
