Surely, this old structure has seen better days but if it could talk, it probably has a treasure trove of stories to share.

The old Ball Corporation Industrial Park houses several glass related operations as well as steel re-bar and plastics. 2 historical markers now sit in the park, one for the Ball Corporation and another for the Hemingray Glass Corporation.
