Madison has a habit of tearing down abandoned buildings, so they are actually quite difficult to find around here. In fact, my favorite nearby abandoned building (seen in my Sepia entry) is in the process of being torn down. There is a fence surrounding the area and heavy machinery pulling down the walls.

Not to far from that building is this one. Connected to an old barn, this is apparently a place where various experiments happened. Walking around the small rooms is a bit creepy, and I haven't gone too far in yet. But I did get this nice shot of the outside on a cloudy day.

So sad and wistful. The gray sky is the perfect backdrop.
