Converted Factories
Description:
There are many factory buildings that are not used for production any more, and have been converted to something else. Here we would like to waymark such buildings.
Expanded Description:
What is a factory by its definition:
- a factory is a building or a group of buildings in which goods are manufactured
- a building or group of buildings containing a plant assembly for the manufacture of goods
- a workshop where manufactured articles are made in large numbers


Lots of factory buildings are not used for production purposes any more and have been converted to something else.

This category is to waymark former factory building(s) that now serve other purposes. The building(s) can house different businesses, can be used for residential purposes or can be used for something else.
The building(s) must be in use, but not for production purposes.
Instructions for Posting a Converted Factories Waymark:
The building has to be used, but not for production purposes. The only exceptions are buildings that have been converted to a museum and the production is running in those buildings for demonstration purposes. Abandoned buildings will not be accepted as a waymark.

Photos: Post minimum of 2 photos of the building. If possible also post a picture of a building when it was still used for production purposes.

Naming: Building name - city, state, country

Add as much information as possible. Try to tell a history of a factory building, the production that was in the building before it was converted. Also tell us something about a current use of a building.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
You must actually visit the place to post a log. With your log, you have to post your own, current photo of a building and tell us your impressions of a visit.
