Beaunit Rayon Factory, Childersberg, Alabama

Beaunit Factory near Childersburg, Alabama
33 deg 22' 29.3''N
86 deg 19' 58.9"W
5.8 miles north of Childersburg on Hwy 235

This abandoned factory is on the edge of the Alabama Army Ammunition Plant.
It's a Superfund site. It's for sale. Search here using a minimum square footage of 600,000 to see a property description and an areal view.
There's an endangered (private) cemetery adjoining the property.

I was surprised to find that Beaunit was (is?) a subsidiary of my husband's employer, El Paso Corp.
