Photo 10-IMC-11


Looking west along North West Street in Danvers, Illinois. The Danvers Farmers Elevator silos are in the background, with what appears to be a tractor dealer along West Street. The Gulf service station is located at 205 South West Street. That building has been repurposed as a small apartment building. The footprint of the United Prairie site has grown, and the dealership is gone. The Peoria and Eastern Railway was abandoned by Conrail in the late 1980s.
