Created By: North Dakota State University

Point of Interest Details

Wheat harvested on bonanza farms would be stored in elevators like this one built in the early 1900s by Amund Trangsrud and his son, Henry. It originally was located near Kindred, MN and was first just a small granary. Later, a drive-through scale and grain shoot, 30-foot elevator, and 10 grain bins were added, allowing 6,300 bushels of grain to be stored collectively. These additions likely came in the 1920s.
