    This was formerly the site of the Rankin, Illinois rail yard, maintenance shop, roundhouse and turntable. According to "Stories of a prairie town: History of Rankin, Ill.-Vermilion Co", at its peak in 1925 the roundhouse had 11 stalls. Its dismantling began in the early 1930s, as the capacity of steam engines allowed them to travel greater distances; thus, the Rankin facility was not necessary. By 1941, the roundhouse had been completely razed. The following link shows what was left in July 1940: https://clearinghouse.isgs.illinois.e...

    This is now the site of the Christian Bible Church. At the time of this photo, the farmstead was part of a 160-acre tract owned by Floyd Murray. After his death on January 26, 1967, the property was advertised for sale at a public auction in the Chatsworth (IL) Plaindealer. The auction was to take place on December 14, 1968.

    In 1922, this elevator replaced the original structure which was damaged by a wind storm. The National Grain Journal reported that its owner, the Sheldon Farmers Co-operative Elevator Company, would tear down the old elevator and build a new one. The elevator was to have 25,000 bushel storage capacity and be covered with galvanized sheet iron. The following year, elevator manager J.B. Worsham wrote a letter to the American Co-operative Manager, mentioning the new elevator was constructed at a cost of $17,000. The original elevator was constructed in the early 1890s by the partnership of R.G. Risser and Warren Terry McCray.

    Talbot Grain's east facility would later lose two of the 75,000 bushel storage bins in May 1985, following a strong wind storm.
