Those are NOT silos. They are grain bins. Silos are for silage, typically concrete or fired-tile blocks.

What a great picture! I really like it! Greetings from Brasília!

The house pictured (on Third Street) WAS built by Charles Ingalls when they moved off the homestead and into town in 1887. The Surveyors' House is a different house and has been moved from where it stood on the shore of Silver Lake to another location in DeSmet. The Ingalls family stayed in the Surveyors' House the winter after the railroad had been built (1879) and before the town was built. The Long Winter was in 1880, and the Ingalls family moved from their homestead shanty (southeast of town) to the building Pa had built in town on the corner of Main (Calumet) and 2nd Street to have better protection from the cold and blizzards. Amazing true story!

Water tower group?

Nice fence and firewood pile.

I will be coming across here the first week of April. I look forward to many good pictures.

The rain seems to have stopped.
