Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 21, 1981):
Constructed 1899-1900, this 125' high cylinder with an inner diameter of 20' is the first such structure in North America and perhaps the world. The forerunner of a building type that dominates the landscape in the grain-growing regions of the country, it was built by grain company owner Frank H. Peavey (1850-1901) and architect Charles F. Haglin (1849-1921) of poured reinforced concrete.

Condition:
Steward indicates that landmark is in "emergency" status, but provides no reason as to why.

There have been no changes since the last reporting period.
