Curious About The History of an Area

The part of town I work in has some old buildings, and I get curious about them—but haven't really been able to dig up any information. (Some of the Large Pictures will take a while to load—I was using a work camera to take some of them and did not realize it was 8.0 Megapixel)

This building for some reason makes me think of a Speakeasy or Mad Scientist's Lair every time I walk past it.

I wish I had taken a picture before they dug it all up and redid the sidewalk—but there were some sections of old Brick Sidewalks that I used to walk on, on a daily basis.

Behind the building I work in, there is an old brick building that is an old warehouse.

The warehouse section of the building was added on to a much smaller building. In the North most room (Garage?), you can see what used to be the Face of the building.

They let us take a look around inside the other day, as a sort of Haunted Tour.

Apparently there is a room that some of the facilities people refuse to go into—they say the temperature drops dramatically when you walk in there. It was so cold yesterday when we took the tour, that if the temperature did drop, I don't think anyone would have noticed.
