These elevators were used to unload Great Lakes bulk ships and load
rail cars to distribute grain to mills around the country.
One of the oldest & largest grain storage elevators, with 3 marine towers for unloading bulk carriers.
Inside an elevator storage building. There were horizontal conveyors (not shown)
used to move grain from the bins, which were unloaded by gravity.
