Here's an old brewery on the corner of North Main Street and I-5. Now it's one of the largest artists' lofts colonies in the world,
but the chimney and the old brick buildings are still standing and were originally built
for an Edison steam power plant in 1903. Then it was converted to a Pabst Blue Ribbon plant for a few decades,
and now it's the live/work lofts since 1982. I think there are about 15 buildings in the complex and twice a year there is an
artwalk so you can explore inside the buildings (the two oldest brick buildings weren't open yet the last time I went there).
