Abandoned Grain Elevator

Abandoned grain elevators are one of the most common sites in the plains of central and eastern Montana. While you can see abandoned elevators pretty much anywhere, you'll see more than most in central Montana. The reason for this is that these grain elevators were highly dependant on the railroad to move their goods. When the Milwaukee Road folded up operations many years ago, these remote grain elevators were left without any sort of economical way to move the grain. As such, many small towns in Montana that are along the old Milwaukee Road right of way have abandoned grain elevators in town.
