Details of the Kanorado, Kansas, elevator by J.H. Tillotson, Contractor

Story and Photos by Gary Rich

Kanorado, Kansas–J.H.┬áTillotson, Contractor, of Denver, built this elevator. Here’s a view of the south side. Note the windows near the top. J.H. Tillotson and Mayer-Osborn built the no-headhouse elevators with different window arrangements.






This view shows the elevator, the office building and feed mill. I do not have a date for when it was built.






The office and feed mill were built at the same time.








This is a manhole cover inside the elevator.
