Abandoned Pennsylvania: Last Curtain Call at The Scranton Lace Factory {EXPLORED}

Scranton Lace manufacturing spanned two centuries of American history. They were the world’s largest producer of Nottingham lace. Their facility included bowling alleys, a gymnasium/theater, a barber shop, an event size kitchen, employee showers and a fully staffed infirmary.

 

In the middle of a shift in 2002, the employees of Scranton Lace were sent home, never to return again. What remained behind was a ghost-like museum of lace-making complete with employee belongings and lace left at mid-production within the looms.
