I agree with Gord. Sounds like a great place to photograph. Terrific comp. and tones, Danny. #9922861

As an added note, there are "Keep Out" signs all around, so everything you shoot has to be from the main road. This leaves you to wonder just what you could find if you could go deep into the town. #9922873

Tells a said story w/o any comment a very revealing capture. It's a shame how many of these small towns exist. Wonderful shooting Danny.

Henry River, North Carolina was an old textile mill town where everything was owned by the mill. When the mill shut down, so did the town. Everything sits as it did on that day making it appear that you have stepped back to the 50's or 60's. The town was recently used as a movie set.
