Lonaconing Silk Mill
I finally got a chance to visit the Lonaconing Silk Mill. Lonaconing is a small town a little west of Cumberland and south of Frostburg, Maryland. The old silk mill has been closed since 1957 and amazingly, all of the equipment and much of the material is still in place.
The owner has been opening it up for photographers for some time to generate bit of money for the most critical maintenance of the facility.
I’ve been aware for a while of various group trips out to the mill but it was only a few weeks ago that I found out about one at a time that I could go. I went with a group from the Antietam Photographic Society, which meets in Hagerstown, Maryland.
Here are a few images from that outing.
If you would like to purchase a print of any of these images, please email me.
