By the size of the parking lot, perhaps this was a business at one time. But the roped off area says "private property, no turn around." And that's what I was actually doing there. But I had to capture this poor building, which has certainly seen better days. I am intrigued how buildings are left to the elements, and what parts of architecture stand up longest.
This wasn't in Black Mountain, but on the road down from Etowah to DuPont State Forest.
