Great Buildings from the Library of Congress


The LOC has about 70 some odd breweries listed in the HAEB/HAER database. Most are large and imposing buildings but some are quite small and funky. I prefer the smaller ones.


Ferd-Heim Brewing Company, Guthrie, OK - Very narrow and bizarre looking stone and brick structure.

Gilbert Brewery, Wallace Street, Virginia City, Madison, MT - Shades of E.L. Moore! Mixed construction.

Lone Star Brewery, San Antonio, TX  - Very small adobe ca 1855.

Old Brewery, Main Street, Weaverville, Trinity, CA - Fairly strange as well. Mixed construction.

Union Brewery, Virginia City, Storey, NV - Brick, good for a main street scene.


Industrial Areas

Union Depot Area, Tacoma, WA


Mines and Stamp Mills

Quincy Mining Company, Hancock, Houghton, MI - Almost 1,000 pages of documentation!

Standard Gold Mill, East of Bodie Creek, Northeast of Bodie, Bodie, Mono, CA - Another really nice package.

Miscellanous You Tube Videos, etc.
