15 Photos of Cleveland's Abandoned Warner and Swasey Building

Posted By on Mon, Nov 3, 2014 at 12:13 PM

During the 1900s, Cleveland's Warner and  Swasey Co. was a leading manufacturer of machine tools, boasting a solid reputation both domestically and abroad. 

But during the business recession of the 1980s, the company sustained unrecoverable financial blows, and many of the company's northeast Ohio branches halted their operations and closed their doors forever.
One branch still looms on Cleveland's Carnegie Avenue, vacant and abandoned, save for the curious local photographer who ventures in to document the building's decomposition. 

Here are some photo from a few such visits, courtesy of local photographer Jeffery R. Stroup, who notes that this eerie building has one of the best rooftop views of Cleveland.
