This historic ruin from Catskill, New York’s industrial era started in 1881 as the Hop-o’-Nose Knitting Mill. Built by Wolfe Bros. and Mull & Fromer, Masons and Builders, the mill gets its name from the nearby rocky promontory known as Hop O’ Nose, which legend says was named after a local Indian named Hopp who had a distinctly large nose. Later in its life, it was known as the Atlanta Knitting Mills. According to one local resident, it was converted to making materials for Broadway shows and movie sets in the 1970s and later known as the MCI building. In 1995, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, but today all that stands is this lone tower.
