The Elks Home’s barn no longer has silos. The two red-capped silos were dismantled last week by Black Dog Salvage.
According to Mike Williams, one of the partners who purchased the Home, the silos had to come down because they posed a safety issue. One was pulling away from the barn, and both had to come down because they are connected. Williams said there is also a tall, brick smokestack at the Home that will have to come down, due to safety concerns, because it has a crack in it.
