It's one of only five grain elevators left in Ontario, and is the last agricultural building left in town. More pictures here.
The current owner, GO Transit, wants to get rid of it to make room for expansion of their commuter parking lot.
Many people agree, and say it should go.... it's been empty for years and is gradually deteriorating.
But the grain elevator is on the town's heritage inventory list, and there are plenty of people who say it should be preserved. This building played a significant role in making this town what it is today.
Some of the suggestions for this building are to turn it into a restaurant, with the upper levels turned into play area for kids, or to move it to the park to be used as a museum and interpretive centre. Our local Radio Station is looking for an antenna location... what better place?
