The Preservation Coalition of Erie County will hold a public meeting to preserve the Great Northern grain elevator which is currently owned by the Pillsbury Company at Garcia's Irish Pub on Pearl Street on Thursday, Feb. 8 at 5:30 p.m.
"The Great Northern is one of Buffalo's premier industrial landmarks and it is imperative that we preserve it for future generations," said Susan McCarthy, president of the organization.
Located at 250 Ganson St., the elevator was designed by Max Toltz and built in 1897. At that time, Buffalo was the world's largest grain port. The Great Northern set new standards in the storage and movement of grains and was the first to implement electricity in moving grains.
Its steel structure replaced inadequate wooden elevators and set the precedent for later concrete models. It also contained the first raised grain silos, an innovation that allowed grain to be unloaded from below.
The Great Northern was described as "an engineering wonder" by "Engineering News" magazine when it opened in 1901. During Buffalo's dominance as the milling center of the country, 55 grain elevators flourished. Today, including the Great Northern, only twelve remain.
