There are 83 locations that still have old style wooden grain elevators in mostly class form. This list also included my top 10 of interest to photographers based on how they look, where they are located, and whether they have original logos on them. Old wooden grain elevators are being torn or burned down regularly; these are the ones you should visit before they are gone.
Check out my book about Grain Elevators. Available at McNally Robinson, Indigo, Coles and online.
