description

Summary

Significance: Saint Anthony Elevator No. 3 was one of the first grain elevators to incorporate an influential system of tile construction patented by Ernest V. Johnson and James L. Record. The structure also is significant as the work of the Barnett and Record Company, a nationally prominent Minneapolis firm that pioneered in the development of tile-elevator construction. For many years after its erection, Saint Anthony Elevator No. 2 functioned as a "captive" elevator for the Washburn-Crosby Company of Minneapolis, one of the city's largest flour milling concerns. In that capacity, it was an integral element in the grain supply network for the Minneapolis flour milling industry.
