The mother of all wood burning stoves!
Wilder’s Post Office.
Wilder, TN Miner’s bank, all that’s left is the vault.
Across from the Post Office and near the vault was this monstrously huge old tanker.
Before we hit Wilder we came across this place, no service.
One thing Wilder did not lack for, Cemeteries. They aren’t easy to find, one required some serious 4 wheel power to get to.
Ok, I shot this creepy little scene, I was NOT getting out of the car.
Evidence of Mining, a ventilation pipe.
Concrete foundation for the mine?
Same foundation, different angle with a dead tree.
End of Part 1
