Tillson Farm steam plant from eastern parking lot
Although the ghostly smoke stack that never actually operated is invisible from the main road cutting through the heart of UMass/Amherst, North Pleasant Street, it is clearly visible from scenic North East Street, standing out as a singular symbol of waste and corruption.
Although I've heard it referred to as the "Paradis Power Plant," nobody seems to remember why. Mostly it's called the "Tillson Farm Steam Plant" or "The one that never worked."

The smoke stack I'm told needs to come down soon, before it falls down on its own. Note lean is towards building.
