John I. Thompson Grain Elevator and Coal Sheds (The Granary) is a
Centre County, Pennsylvania, historic landmark. Built in 1885 by Moses
Thompson, the Granary helped distribute locally grown agricultural
products by way of the railroad. The grain elevator was used to store
grain that was sold to local residents or shipped by railroad cars to
surrounding areas, while the railroad building was used as a place for
trains to deposit coal.
The Granary is available as a venue for special
events on a limited basis and according to the guidelines adopted by the
Lemont Village Association (LVA). Contact us for more information.
