This abandoned Pillsbury plant in Illinois would be perfect for a horror movie set.

Obsession With Abandoned Places

What is with the obsession with abandoned businesses and buildings? I think it is part nostalgia. We like looking back on the past and memories. It is also curiosity. What does it look like inside now? Especially, places we were not normally allowed to go.

Next Abandoned Exploration In Illinois

For my next stop in the abandoned places in Illinois series, we will visit Springfield for a look inside an old Pillsbury factory.

According to Lost Vlog YouTube Channel,

"Pillsbury Mills in Springfield, IL opened in 1929, Pillsbury employed 1500 workers in 1950. In 1991, Pillsbury sold the 18-acre Plant to Cargill. 10 years later they would shut down operations, the former plant now sits abandoned."
