Old bathroom fixtures factory in Hespeler. Portions of it were built in 1847. American Standard purchased it in 1969.
This was one of the main money-makers in Hespeler and helped lift the little town onto its feet.
The factory closed in 2007. Ever since then the building has sat empty.
After many trips back, I finally found a way in. Turns out part of the building is being used by the Drayton Theatre company as a storage house for all their props & sets.
The building is now under video surveillance as well as a part time guard for nights. I have never run into anyone but I have friends who went at night and couldn't access the building. All POE's are locked up tight.
The building is being converted into Lofts.
