What is it...

We pass this on the way to Arthur, Illinois.  I have been going to Arthur for probably close to 25 years.  Every time I pass this, I wonder what it is.  I wonder was it here before the rest of the place...or was it build when the house was built.
This last capture is not that great.  I tried to lighten it till you can see it better.  It was a total mess...Roger actually tried to slow down some to allow me to get pics, but the top one was the best I could do.

Anyway, I think I have posted a pic of this place some time before.  I am still no closer to know anything about it.  I swear, I think if someone was outside ever, I would be tempted to stop and ask about it.  Normally we are going so fast that it is just there and gone before I can think about anything.  Such as I don't even know if it and the home are built of the same brick.  And my eyes are always on it, so don't even know if I would see someone if they were out there.

We did get a skim of snow...had big old flakes last night.  And the wind was so cold today it would just go right through a person.  Not sure what tomorrow will bring.  I think it is supposed to still be cold.

Sarah said Sunday night, she ended up reading 10 of the books to Lorelei, and 7 or 8 last night.  That girl does love a good story.

You have me wondering what it is. I looks like there are 3 floors to it. I hope you find out what it is and what it's used for and let us know.

Interesting structure - I hope you find out what it is so you can share it with us! We had a pleasant 40 above this morning. I was happy with that - esp. when it was forecast to be only 28 this morning.

Hmmm! I have NO idea what it is...but I am curious.

Lucky Lorelei that er mom read her so many books at once!

I wonder if the building could be an enclosed derrick with a well underneath. It would allow year around ability to service their well. I'm probably wrong on this one. :-)

I do wonder what that building cold be. Maybe an old grain silo made into a living structure. I say that because out here there are several tall square structures that once were grain elevators---Dutch influence I was told. On has been made into a rental. I must find that picture. These are wooden buildings though.
Glad Lorelei loves books. MB

I was thinking along the same lines and MB. I do hope someday you will stop and ask. Or if it isn't too far out of Arthur maybe someone in town would know as you're shopping.
I wondered if it had been part of an older structure that had once been there and it was kept and renovated.
Questions, questions! :)

No snow at all here--but it is COLD… The wind brought down most of the remainder of our leaves…

I tried to do a little research for you in Arthur, Illinois --looking for that building. The closest thing I found was that it may have been part of the railroad back years ago.. You can check out the Arthur Historical Society on Facebook. They hare tons of photos… Link: https://www.facebook.com/arthurhistoricalsociety

Hugs,

I am thinking a small living space downstairs and some kind of look-out/work space upstairs. Let us know if you find out.

I wonder if it may be a water-tower. You really should stop and get a closer look at it.
