Ametek Shows its Colors

Photos below show what remains, the administration building and pump house, of the old Ametek plant in Marshallton, Delaware. The pictures highlight the two structures remaining on the site along with the footbridge still intact over the spillway of the original mill race from the Hersey Mill. Also shown is some remaining open space across the street from the buildings and along Red Clay Creek to the intersection of Greenbank and Duncan Roads.

Below is looking north along the Red Clay Creek from Hersey Bridge on Newport Road.
Ametek property is on both sides of the stream.

Below is looking south from across the stream and behind the pump house.
Ametek is on both the east and west side of thr Red Clay Creek

Another bridge on the property crossing the Red Clay.

Looking south from above bridge.
Hersey Bridge is in the distance.
Again, bisecting the property.

Looking north from above bridge.
The stream still splits the parcel.
Kirkwood Highway Bridge is ahead.
East side of property on the right. West side on left.

Looking down from south side of Kirkwood Highway Bridge.
The property seen here belongs to the parcel with Wilmington and
 Western Railroad at the top just out of the photo.

I believe this is old railroad siding, but on Ametek property.

In this view the gates to the original mill race
would be on the far right
