Established in whaling days The Gotham Sail Works produced acres of sail canvas for shipping over decades. Finally, it closed down just before the turn of the century. It has been empty ever since and has been slowly decaying. It is surrounded by a sturdy fence and the front gate is locked. No one, however, takes care of or watches the place. It has gotten a sinister reputation in Blanchaven over the decades and is shunned by the locals. It is said that this was place where The Victorian Legion defeated Prince Dietrick Von Evil and his gang of vicious killers.
Our Heroes defeated Baron Stahl and his Nazi agents here in March 1934 when Stahl briefly acquired the Book of Frankenstein. Stahl escaped but his first electro-super-monster was destroyed and the book recaptured.
