Various thoughts and travels
I was out somewhere & there was corn piled on the ground next to the elevators, good sized hills of corn.I guess when you have to put to put your grain somewhere, it has to go somewhere & an old school house sounds like a better place than to pile it on the ground.
A lot of old schools were bought by farmers to store grain. It was probably cheaper at the time than buying a granary and setting it up.
Wonderful old building - wonder if it had a bell on top at one time.
