Ever Seen a Corn Crib Like This?
Look at this mysterious corn crib in southwest Iowa and help answer this reader's question on its origins.
This corn crib measures 8 feet wide by 36 feet long with a screened “V” bottom. It is about 15 to 20 feet tall and is located in southwest Iowa. It appears to have been produced by Cowin & Co., Minneapolis, but I’ve not seen anything like it anywhere. Does anyone know anything about it?
