Century-Old Silo Re-Erected in Union Gap

Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP--A project 16 months in the making finished Saturday.

The Central Washington Agricultural Museum re-erected a century-old silo Saturday morning at Fullbright park.

They took the silo apart and moved it to the park back in November.  Saturday, volunteers put it back together, one piece at a time.

After a couple hours, the 36-foot silo was standing tall again.

"My reaction is a great relief," Museum volunteer Ray Kempf said with a laugh.  "Just to get it prepared so we could even move it back up without it falling apart was a big challenge."

Kempf said the silo used to hold cattle feed.

All the work and materials needed to re-erect the silo were donated.
