It is an all too familiar scene as you drive through once rural, now booming parts of Ohio. The farmland is now parceled to quarter-acre plots with a house and a swing set, the barns are gone and the only thing left that would give you a hint that the piece of ground was once a farm is a single silo. In most cases, the only reason it is still there is because it is just as expensive to tear down as it was to put up.
Many companies are taking advantage of these parts of the landscape that were once common and now a novelty. I can’t help but think about the stories these structures could tell about good times and bad and how much they miss those times, either way.
Here are some examples that I have found as I drive around The Buckeye State.
I know there are plenty more out there that I haven’t come across yet and I would love to see them! Send me pictures of ones in your area. My email is Ty@OhioAgNet.com.
