Superior, Wisconsin Wooden Grain Elevator

An oldy, but goody.....

According to the tour, this is the last wooden grain elevator in the Duluth, Minnesota harbor - evidently the others, uh, burned down. Apparently wooden grain elevators and explosive grain dust are not a good combination.

This building is being reclaimed and the company is selling the wood for new construction. www.oldglobewood.com/

Yep right in my old back yard, I grew up in the neighborhood near that old grain elevator.
