We've sold our house and this afternoon was the buyer's inspection of the property. So...the dog and I wound up driving down to Scotts, Michigan where I found the former home of White Sales Corporation.
This building, like many of the structures in Scotts now stands empty. Scotts in its heyday was a thriving agriculture community. It was a crossroads for rail service and had a grain mill and pickle factory. Over time Scotts was eclipsed by the growth of its nearby neighbors Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, Michigan. Farms still surround the town, trains pass through but don't stop, and the town marks time.
