10/08/2020 - After a hasty visit the previous day, we returned to see if we could not get a better look. The front gate was unlocked and we were able to walk a short distance into the open grassy area. However from another area we found a crawl-space into some of the silos themselves. This interior had clearly seen a lot of visitors, and there were large piles of crumbling concrete. I am not convinced of structural safety nor of safety to one’s own person. (As if to underscore this, above one crawlspace someone had spray-painted “Free Hugs” with an arrow; funny but I also would not recommend spending much time in there.)
