Edinburgh gets grant to raze abandoned elevator

A grain elevator in Edinburgh that hasn’t been used since 1973 will be torn down by spring after the town received a state grant to pay for the demolition.

The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs awarded Edinburgh a $127,000 grant to tear down the building on State Road 252 just east of the railroad tracks.

Not only has the building deteriorated after years of not being used, it’s also close to the road, and drivers have a hard time seeing around it at the intersection, Edinburgh building commissioner Wade Watson said.
