Notes
Survey number HABS CO-125-B
Building/structure dates: 1923 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1934 subsequent work
Significance: This 1923 barn is constructed of crude cast-in-place concrete up to the second floor, horizontal wood siding over wood frame on the second floor, and a plank-truss roof system with original wood shingles. Originally used as a livestock barn, it was modified in 1934 to serve as a small grain elevator as well. Grain was dumped into the ground chute outside the east end of the barn and moved by auger to pit in the barn floor. From there, a lifting mechanism (no longer in place) raised the grain to the top of the elevator, at which point it was directed into various plywood and metal chutes leading to different grain bins. This allowed the creation of feed mixes tailored to specific livestock needs. Feed from a given bin could be loaded into trucks through a metal chute penetrating the exterior wall of the bin and barn.
