Wilton's oldest remaining grain elevator

By today’s standards, Wilton’s old grain elevator is miniscule.   However, at one time, Wilton boasted 5 similar grain elevators along the Soo Line railroad.  A Bismarck  Tribune article of the early 1900’s told of being able to see Wilton’s grain elevators from 14 miles away. In this shot, the grain elevator catches the evening’s golden glow of the setting sun.  A line up of mail boxes for rural carrier delivery are nearly buried in the snow bank.
