Industrial Repurposed Ontario Canada

History: 

Constructed in 1929, this structure stands over 100 feet high, and had a capacity of 228,000 bushels of grain. The facility closed in 1993.

Currently a business appears to be operating in part of the building working on boats.


Personal Commentary: 

We weren't actually able to get a look inside this place, although I understand it has been done. One side of the property is part of a marina, while the other side is a public park. We were also surprised by a bat in broad daylight.
