This old factory building was once the bread and butter of its community. The International Boiler Works Company was a world leader in heat and power production from the 1890’s through 1992. Its products may be found in many communities across the nation and waterways.
The Minnie-Ha-Ha at Lake George New York is just one of currently operating steamboats that leisurely transports site-seeing tourists as in time past; powered by a boiler built within these very walls.
The company was one of many to become a target of lawsuits concerning Mesothelioma.
Once a world leader in the production of heat and steam products, its buildings now lay vacant and vandalized.
