Delightful!

Unique residential repurposing of a grain silo -- almost a hundred miles from the nearest coastline where a lighthouse might be useful.

Landlocked Lighthouse

This landlocked lighthouse is a repurposed grain silo, sitting on Kernsville Rd. near Allentown, Pennsylvania. This lighthouse was built by someone on a farm that thought it would be cool to make one out of an unused grain silo! It's been there for years on Kernsville Road just east of PA SR 100.
