Approaching Tillotson Construction’s Dallas Center, Iowa, elevator from a different angle yields a view of the driveway used by co-op members when unloading grain.
This original elevator built in 1955 boasted capacity of 250,000 bushels and rose 166 feet in height.
Dallas Center Farmers Cooperative had contracted Tillotson to do the job for $151,000.
