Image Source: The American Engineering Historical Record. Jet Lowe, photographer, 1985. The Standard Elevator stands next to the Buffalo River, immediately upstream of the Ohio Street Bridge. It was built in two phases of development. It was designed by the A.E. Baxter Engineering Company, and built in 1928 by the James Stewart Company. The 3,000,000 bushel facility was to be part of a large flour milling complex. However, the plans were scaled down, and only the elevator was built. It served as a transfer elevator, supplying Standard's Seneca Street flour mill and other mills. In 1940, the Standard Company revived its original plans to build a mill and an annex to the elevator on the site. Once again, however, the plans were not completed, and only the 2,000,000 bushel elevator annex was added in 1942. When the Standard Mill closed in 1985, he elevator was sold to the Pillsbury Company to replace the closed Great Northern Elevator. The elevator was later sold to Archer-Daniels Midland, and as of 2010 continues to supply their flour mill on Ganson Street.
