As I was researching old creepy, abandoned buildings that remain standing in Connecticut, I discovered the Abandoned Aerosol Techniques Factory in Milford thanks to the website abandonedwonders.com and the video work of the Graffiti Wanderer on YouTube.
According to abandonedwonders.com, this massive aerosol factory was built in the ’60s and produced everything having to do with aerosol products and plastic bottles. The facility is a sprawling 176,000 square feet that closed down in the mid-1990s and was then abandoned.
The difference between this building that was left to rot and other massive structures is this abandoned aerosol factory became a living museum for some of the best graffiti artists in the tri-state area.
