Home of cities, large and small,
but flat as a table,
Laden with fields of corn, soybeans and hay;
Dotted with prosperous farms and grain elevators;
Criss-crossed by lush forests and
lovely rivers and streams.
Breadbasket near the heart of the nation;
Helping to feed the stomachs of the world.
This grain elevator near the intersection of Hwy 78 and I-74 at Brimfield, Illinois
is the subject of many paintings, watercolors, and sketches seen in art displays
in the Galesville and Peoria areas of Illinois.
