Requirements & Suggestions
Located in East central Missouri, this elevator is typical of many small rural elevators built throughout the country at the turn of the century. Covered with corrugated metal to reduce the likelihood of fire, it has weathered the years with few modifications.
At one time, the tracks of the St. Louis and Hannibal railroad passed through this farming community and many cars were spotted at this elevator. By 1940, the St. L. & H. had abandoned this part of the line, ending rail service. The elevator continued to be used by trucks until it was replaces by a modern facility.
