Nature Is Reclaiming This One Abandoned Maine Spot And It’s Actually Amazing

On the banks of the roaring Androscoggin sits Bates Mill #5, one part of a hulking brick textile factory that was once the backbone of the Lewiston economy. Sadly, like many of the mills that dot Maine’s landscape, this once bustling building has gone quiet, left to be reclaimed by the elements.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
