Fox River Country Day School, Concrete Grain Silo

Hyde Park, IL


Landmarks Illinois



The 53-acre Fox River Country Day School campus, a designated Natural Heritage Landmark, comprises ten major buildings constructed during different eras. When the school was established in 1923, the property included a working farm. The City of Elgin now owns the campus, including two of the original farm structures: a concrete grain silo and a log barn. To support an effort by Landmarks Illinois to summarize the campus’s repair needs and historical significance, SGH assessed the concrete grain silo’s condition.
