#tbt - Abandoned Fischer Packing Company (Railroad) Bridge

Back in the Fall of 2014, before we had an official logo, we visited the abandoned Fischer Packing Company bridge. For nearly a century, the Fischer Packing Company plant on Mellwood Avenue in Louisville, Kentucky was a place where pigs were slaughtered and bacon, bologna, and ham were packaged and shipped out.

In the Fall of 2003, John Clark, Owner of Clark Enterprises, a development construction and property management firm, bought the 46-acre site.

Across Mellwood Avenue rests the abandoned bridge that trains use to cross over on their way to the Fischer Packing Company, making deliveries and picking up waste.  The bridge stands strong, yet is left to decay now that the packing company no long exists at that location.
