Demolition of Wynndel's United Grain Growers elevator began Friday, expected to be completed by the end of this week.
The elevator was deemed a liability by owner CP Rail, said James Blackmore of B-Boys Special Products, the company contracted for removal.
The iconic elevator will live on, though, in wood furniture built by B-Boys.
“Our goal is to reuse some of the wood,” confirmed Blackmore.
According to the Creston Museum's website, the grain elevator "was built in the mid-1930s, was sold into private hands in 1971, and was operating as a private grain storage facility as recently as 2001."
