    History Lesson - Photos of Abandoned Gun Manufacturing Facilities

    My brother sent me this link. Nice past and present photos and descriptions of Colt, Winchester, Whitney and many other old gun manufacturing plants:

    Ghost Gun Factories

    This post is not about factories that produce "Ghost Guns", but rather a story of "ghost factories". Buildings that once produced the "Arsenal of Democracy" that are now sitting abandoned, destroyed or just plain gone with the wind.

    I have attached a very few samples of the many photos.
