Baker Chocolate Silos

No. 7361 Baker Chocolate silos.


Eighteen large silos and a grain elevator were built in 1941 as storage, in anticipation of World War II and difficulties in securing cacao beans. The “Baker Chocolate” painted silos remained a landmark in the Lower Mills for decades. The silos were never filled to capacity and in 1987 they were demolished.
