Whiting, Wisconsin; the former Whiting Division of Consolidated Paper / Stora Enso / New Page,
as seen in August, 2014.
The paper mill building is knocked down to concrete rubble.
|This is what it looked like a year earlier, in 2013; and that was a year after production ceased.|
|The dam and powerhouse is the only thing saved in 2014.|
|In 2012, when it was all standing:|
|and in August 2014, its gone.|
this is the building on the left of the above picture, as seen in mid-August 2014
It was the last tall building on this end of the complex to be knocked down.
From the notching and felling and then the total removal of the steel was half a week.
When each tall building fell, it shook the ground for a mile around.
|That building was standing near this side of the red excavator, less than a week before this picture.|
The only thing standing on this day was one of the two pulp silos on the north end of the property, a half mile north of the paper mill.
And even that is all knocked down as of August 27, 2014.
Some of my other web pages about the mill:
when a lot of it was still standing in the Spring of 2014
March 2014 and that page has my links to 5 earlier pages showing the older days when trains actually ran there.
