     History
    This elevater is at least 70 years old and is still owned by Pioneer Grain. I assumed it was abandoned / mothballed due to fact I didn't see any activity, and the rail line hadn't been used in a long time. I am guessing that Pioneer is using it as a surge / backup plant to their newer facility accross town. **** UPDATE **** I Passed through town in February 2006 and this elevator is gone.
     Media Coverage
    None
     Future Plans
    I am positive Pioneer will close the facility and after they attempt to sell it, they will tear it down. I have seen 1000's of these prairie icons disappear over the past 10 years *** UPDATE It's Gone ****
