7. Former General Electric Plant in Fort Edward

In the quaint, historical town of Fort Edward, a former General Electric plant has remained vacant since the company shut down the branch in 2013 after 70+ years in operation.

G.E. shifted its production of capacitors to a different facility in Florida as the Fort Edward branch was no longer being competitive. The company has expressed interest in seeking demolition permits, but local officials believe that the demolition of the former plant and the removal of the building from tax rolls would have a major impact on the surrounding area by cutting revenues to the local school districts.
