In 1911, the Northern Exploration Company established Ny-London (“New London”) as a mining community, hoping to tap the region’s rich marble supply. The venture was a failure, the marble worthless, and the town was abandoned completely in 1920. Littered with graves, old equipment and rusting machinery, the site is now a unique insight into history, as well as a haunting reminder of the past.

It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see.
