Through all of the trials and hardships the city of Detroit has gone through, the iconic Packard plant has stood by as a reminder of how far the city has fallen from its past glories. The graffiti riddled property has become a mecca for urban explorers, artists and photographers since being abandoned a decade or so ago.
While most abandoned properties receive random visits from security companies, the owners of the former Packard plant have taken a somewhat unorthodox approach. Urban “Farmer”, Allan Hill lives in the vacant building along with a pack of pooches. While Hill’s abode lacks niceties such as hot and cold running water, the rather eccentric gent fares quite nicely. He even has a full welding setup and the internet.
Part of a video series called This must be the place follows Allan Hill as he wanders through the structure and gives his thoughts on his city.
Watch the captivating video after the break.
