The Wilton Farmers Union Elevator is adding on this spring. That’s a good sign. With as many abandoned grain elevators out here on the prairie that have been left behind when the railroads abandoned small towns, it is good to see one small town elevator adding on.
At one time there were several elevators in Wilton on the rail line. Now, they’ve been incorporated in to one large system. Just one grain bin in today’s elevator is as large as that first elevator that was built here in 1900.
