The edges of the old Bottoms district include buildings and businesses that survived. The northeast edges include the Hills Pet Nutrition plant and BNSF properties (previously Santa Fe), two prominent employers for former Bottoms residents. These two properties were left out of the urban renewal district and are still in use. A large smokestack on the BNSF property can be seen in some of my photographs and stands out in some of the archival photographs I found. I can only imagine that smokestack stood as a landmark for many going to work or finding their way around.
