Site of the old "Baldwin Iron Works" in Whitbney, Nebraska
Artist Kit Watson of Chadron sketched this excellent likeness of the old Baldwin Ironworks building in Whitney. It is among the more than 150 images in her latest book, Pine Ridge Sketches. Our thanks to Kit for her generosity in allowing us to use some of her great work on this site.
"Like a proud woman, this old building retains a certain sense of romance even as she ages. She was built in the late 1920's by T. L. Holding and in the 1940's Curtis Baldwin successfully manufactured grain augers here. Over the years the rambling structure found her purpose in Whitney as a lumberyard and as a supply center for grain, feed, salt and coal."
