Shutdown in 2007 the Indianapolis Coke plant once converted coal into the industrial fuel coke. After shutting down it was listed as a Super Fund site. In 2012 the site was demolished

I used to work here before the plant shut down. Shoveling coal all night into 2000+ degree ovens was no joke. I never thought about going back to do some photography until I stumbled across this site.. I may have a project on hand now.

That's right, the huge blue tank is definitely gone, but 90 percent of all buildings are still standing. I live about 200 meters away from it.

The indianapolis coke plant hasn't been demolished yet. It's entirely abandoned and broken down but is still standing.

I remember back in 68' our family was visiting our Grand parents.We went to a movie at the Twins Drive in.I think that the movie was "The Lost Man" with Sidney Poitier.Anyway,I remember that I was intrigued by all the heavy industry in the area(being eight years old)And my eyes kept being drawn to the large coke heater(incinerartor?)and the strange tank with the metal frame built around it.

This place in the pictures isn't demolished although they did tear down the tank many of the buildings on the property are still standing.
