Kansas grain elevators truly are prairie skyscrapers, towering over nearly every city and town in Kansas. Many of the concrete grain elevators, such as the one shown here, were built in the 1950's. These elevators are approximately 130-140 feet tall or as tall as a 13-14 story building (including the box-like "head house" up on top).
