Rural Communities Foundation gives $27,250 for restoration of Castor Elevator

Written by Submitted

It takes time, money and volunteers to keep a 110 year-old wooden grain elevator standing upright.

The Rural Communities Foundation gave Castor and District Museum Society $27,250 to help maintain the local elevator.

The group plans to use the money to replace the sliding driveway doors, boards and casing on the elevator’s exterior and prime and repaint the agent’s office.
