The Andersons Grain Elevator, 2018

The Andersons Grain Elevator

After the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway, in 1960 the Andersons opened this loading facility to capitalize on the increased access of “salties” to the Great Lakes and the increased ability to ship grain overseas. Grain continues to be one of the largest exports for the Port of Toledo.
