The Inside Of This Abandoned Chocolate Factory Will Give You The Creeps (23 Pics)

By on Sunday, January 25, 2015

Much like the factory at the start of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, the candy factory that most likely gave you your earliest chocolate memories is now closed. Hershey recently decided demolish its original factory, after it was left pretty much abandoned. No one goes in, and no one goes out.

Nobody except photographer Matthew Christopher, whose father worked for the original Hershey factory before its demise. There are no crazy and elaborate Willy Wonka-esque contests going on here; you'll only find rusty machines and bricks.

It may look bad, but considering that it was built in 1903, it's actually in pretty good shape.
