I recently got to take a trip to Mason Mill park to visit the old Decatur Waterworks Plant. When I first got there, it looked like any other park. I did not see any signs of the old ruins. However, after talking to a local jogger, I found that you have to take a bit of a walk to see of them. However, after a short walk, I did get to see some interesting ruins. What was more interesting to me was actually the affect of the sun on the clouds.
The Decatur Waterworks was a facility that obtained drinking water for the city of Decatur, Georgia, from the local Peachtree Creek and Burnt Fork Creek. Completed in 1907 and abandoned since the 1940s, the Waterworks have fallen into disrepair and are covered with graffiti. The Decatur Waterworks are in Mason Mill Park, near the city of Decatur. On March 15, 2006, the Decatur Waterworks was added to the National Register of Historic Places, due to its former industrial significance as a water works, its political importance as Works Progress Administration (WPA) project, and its use as a public park.
Take a look at some of the photos below.
