This thread has a lot of information about Old Taylor.

Your best lead would be from Amy Bennett. She's the grad. student that Chuck wrote about in that thread. I don't know how to contact her but maybe other folks here could help.

BettyeJo's correct the thread's your best bet, but just out of curiousity why do you want the pix?

Amy Bennett has dropped out of sight, as grad students are sometimes prone to do. Her web site has come down and she doesn't respond to email. Too bad. I hope she's okay.

The only building I've been inside of at Old Taylor was the old museum and that was 14 years ago. It was a tumble down mess then, like they just closed the doors one day and gave the place a good shake.

I don't know how much of anything is there. Typically when distilleries close, anything of value is salvaged out immediately, which means anything that has any copper in it. The people who bought it from Beam either sold or disposed of all the documents and artifacts they found, including decanters and that sort of thing. The place has been dark for 34 years, so I'm pretty sure it's nothing but junk now.
